Abstract

MHD free convection, heat and mass transfer flow over a rotating inclined permeable plate with the influence of magnetic field, thermal radiation and chemical reaction of various order has been investigated numerically. The governing boundary-layer equations are formulated and transformed into a set of similarity equations with the help of similarity variables derived by lie group transformation. The governing equations are solved numerically using the Nactsheim-Swigert Shooting iteration technique together with the Runge-Kutta six order iteration schemes. The simulation results are presented graphically to illustrate influence of magnetic parameter (Μ), porosity parameter (γ), rotational parameter (R'), Grashof number (Gr), modified Grashof number (Gm), thermal conductivity parameter (Tc), Prandtl number (Pr) , radiation parameter (R), heat source parameter (Q), Eckert number (Ec), Schmidt number (Sc), reaction parameter (λ) andorder of chemical reaction (η) on the all fluid velocity components, temperature and concentration distribution as well as Skin-friction coefficient, Nusselt and Sherwood number at the plate.

Keywords: MHD, inclined permeable plate, thermal radiation, chemical reaction
