ENTROPY GENERATION IN MHD FLOW THROUGH A DEFORMABLE POROUS LAYER WITH CONSTANT INJECTION/ SUCTION AT THE BOUNDARY
Keywords:MHD, Deformable porous layer, Entropy generation, Brinkman number, Bejan number
The present paper examines the entropy generation on MHD flow of viscous fluid over a deformable vertical porous layer with constant injection/ suction velocity at the boundary walls of the layer. The combined phenomenon of the solid deformation and fluid movement in the porous medium are taken into consideration. The influence of relevant non-dimensional parameters on the fluid velocity, solid displacement, temperature and concentration profiles are discussed. Also, the impact of Brinkman number, volume fraction parameter and drag parameter on entropy generation and Bejan number are discussed.
