Heat and Mass Transfer in Visco-Elastic Fluid through Rotating Porous Channel with Hall Effect
Abstract: This paper examined the hydromagnetic boundary layer flow of viscoelastic fluid with heat and mass transfer in a vertical channel with rotation and Hall current. A constant suction and injection is applied to the plates. A strong magnetic field is applied in the direction normal to the plates. The entire system rotates with uniform angular velocity (Ω), about the axis perpendicular to the plates. The governing equations are solved by perturbation technique to obtain an analytical result for velocity, temperature, concentration distributions and results are presented graphically for various values of viscoelastic parameter (K2), Prandtl number (Pr), Schmidt number (Sc), radiation parameter (R), heat generation parameter (Qh) and Hall parameter (m).
