Joule Heating and Viscous Dissipation on Effects on MHD Flow over a Stretching Porous Sheet Subjected to Power Law Heat Flux in Presence of Heat Source
Abstract: In the present work we investigate the effects of Joule heating and viscous dissipation on MHD fluid flow. The viscous incompressible fluid flows over a stretching porous horizontal sheet subjected to power law heat flux in presence of heat source. The equations of momentum and heat transfer governing the problem are transformed into a system of dimensionless differential equations, which in turn solved numerically using shooting technique. The effects of the Joule heating parameter, permeability parameter, heat source parameter, Eckert number and Prandtl number are discussed and tabulated.
