Dissipative Heat Transfer on Hydromagnetic Flow of Copper and Alumina Ethylene-Glycol Based Nanofluid over a Heated Vertical Plate
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, the dissipative heat transfer of magnetohydrodynamic nanofluid with EthyleneGlycol as the base fluid containing copper and Alumina as the nanoparticles is considered. The steady viscous flow of the electrically conducting liquid is considered to be along a heated vertical plate. The transformed boundary layer equations are non-dimensionalized using appropriate similarity variables and solved using the fourth-order Runge-Kutta method coupled with a shooting technique. The influence of pertinent parameters on velocity profile, temperature profile, skin friction and Nusselt number are investigated and the results analyzed graphically using MATLAB. The results obtained in velocity, temperature and concentration profiles were in good agreement with the actual flow dynamics. Al2O3- Ethylene glycol-based nanofluid had the highest skin friction while Cu-Ethylene glycol-based nanofluid had higher heat and mass transfer rates.
