Abstract

The current article aims to investigate Soret and Dufour's effects on MHD flow of heat and mass transfer nanofluid over a vertical stretching sheet with activation energy and radiation. Using Similarity transformations, the non-linear momentum, energy, solute, and nanoparticle concentration boundary layer equations are simplified. The resulting boundary layer equations are solved numerically with bvp4c and along with the shooting technique. The impact of various parameters on velocity, temperature, concentration, and nanoparticle volume fraction, Skin friction, local Sherwood and local Nusselt numbers are presented through graphs. It is found that the temperature, fluid velocity, and nanoparticle volume fraction enhanced with both Dufour and Soret effects.
