Heat and Mass Transfer in MHD Visco-Elastic Fluid Flow through a Porous Medium over a Stretching Sheet with Chemical Reaction

Abstract

This paper presents the study of convective heat and mass transfer characteristics of an incompressible MHD visco-elastic fluid flow immersed in a porous medium over a stretching sheet with chemical reaction and thermal stratification effects. The resultant governing boundary layer equations are highly non-linear and coupled form of partial differential equations, and they have been solved by using fourth order Runge-Kutta integration scheme with Newton Raphson shooting method. Numerical computations are carried out for the non-dimensional physical parameters. Here a numerical has been carried out to study the effect of different physical parameters such as visco-elasticity, permeability of the porous medium, magnetic field, Grashof number, Schmidt number, heat source parameter and chemical reaction parameter on the flow, heat and mass transfer characteristics.
