Unsteady MHD oscillatory visco-elastic fluid flow through an inclined channel in presence of chemical reaction with Soret and Dufour effects

Das, Utpal Jyoti; Dorjee, Sonam

Abstract

The purpose of present paper is to analyze the Soret and Dufour effects on an unsteady magneto hydrodynamic oscillatory flow of radiative, visco-elastic fluid through an inclined channel filled with saturated porous medium with non-uniform wall temperature in presence of first-order chemical reaction. The governing dimensionless momentum equation coupled with the energy and mass diffusion equations are solved analytically. The expressions for velocity, temperature, concentration, skin friction, Nusselt number and Sherwood number are obtained and are analyzed graphically for various values of the dimensionless flow parameters.
