The NANOFLUID FLOW BETWEEN PARALLEL PLATES AND HEAT TRANSFER IN PRESENCE OF CHEMICAL REACTION AND POROUS MATRIX
Nanofluid Flow Between Parallel Plates and Heat Transfer
This paper deals with nanofluid flow between parallel plates and heat transfer through porous media with heat source /sink. The governing equations are transformed into self-similar ordinary differential equations by adopting similarity transformations and then the converted equations are solved numerically by Runge-Kutta fourth order method. Special emphasis has been given to the parameters of physical interest which include Prandtl number, magnetic parameter, porous matrix, chemical reaction parameter and heat source parameter. The results obtained for velocity, temperature and concentration are shown in graphs. The comparison of the special case of this present results with the existing numerical solutions in the literature shows excellent agreement.
