Hydromagnetic Mixed Convection Flow of Nanofluid with Slip, Viscous Dissipation and Joule Heating Past an Inclined Plate
MetadataShow full item record
A numerical analysis is performed on the combined effects of Joule heating and viscous dissipation on a steady two-dimensional flow of an electrically conducting water-based nanofluid containing three different nanoparticles: copper (Cu), aluminium oxide (Al2O3) and Iron Oxide (Fe3O4) past an inclined plate comparing both suction and injection. Using a similarity transformation, the governing non-linear partial differential equations are converted into a system of coupled non-linear ordinary differential equations and then solved numerically using shooting technique with a fourth-order Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg integration scheme. Graphical results are presented and the effects of pertinent parameters on the dimensionless velocity and temperature quantitatively discussed. The numerical values of the rate of heat transfer '(0) and the shear stress f''(0) presented in a table. The results show that there are significant effects of the controlling parameters on the flow fields.
