Analysis of Casson Fluid Flow over a Vertical Porous Surface with Chemical Reaction in the Presence of Magnetic Field
Abstract: Casson fluid flow over a vertical porous surface with chemical reaction in the presence of magnetic field has been studied. A similarity analysis was used to transform the system of partial differential equations describing the problem into ordinary differential equations. The reduced system was solved using the Newton Raphson shooting method alongside the Forth-order Runge-Kutta algorithm. The results are presented graphically and in tabular form for various controlling parameters.
