Abstract

A steady two-phase fluid flow over a curved elongating sheet with dust particles has been scrutinized. Influence of volume fraction, applied magnetic field, buoyancy-driven force on the flow over a porous medium has been studied. Using similarity transformations, multivariable functions having partial derivatives in the problem for both fluid and dust phases are transmuted into ordinary differential equations. Then, emerging non-linear differential equations are formulated numerically by employing MATLAB built-in bvp4c solver scheme. Shapes of momentum, thermal and mass boundary layers have been shown by graphical forms for various values of flow parameters. Friction factor, heat and mass transfer rates are calculated and given in tabular forms.
