12. MHD Free Convective Heat Transfer Flow of an Electrically Conducting Fluid Along A Vertical Porous Medium in the Presence Of Variable Viscosity by Oyem O. A., Ajogbon M.andSalifu A. M.JNAMP Volume 43,(Sept. and Nov., 2017), 73 – 80
Sale price: $5.00


The study of a steady, incompressible, viscous fluid flow of a variable viscosity and thermal diffusivity with viscous dissipation and heat source effects on free convective heat transfer along a moving vertical porous medium is considered. The governing partial differential equations are transformed using similarity variable to a set of coupled nonlinear ordinary differential equations and solved numerically using Runge-Kutta fourth order scheme with shooting technique implemented with MATLAB. The numerical results are tabulated and the effects on velocity and temperature profiles of the governing parameters are displayed graphically.
