Radiation and Mass Transfer Effects on MHD Viscous Flow Past an Impulsively Started Vertical Plate through a Porous Medium

G Siva Kumar


In this paper we have analyzed the effects of Radiation and mass transfer on MHD viscous flow. The flow is assumed to be past an impulsively vertical plate in porous medium. The governing equations of the flow are solved numerically using finite difference scheme. Finally the influence of various physical parameters involved in the equations of velocity, temperature and concentration are discussed through graphs. More over through this numerical study, we observed that velocity as well as temperature profiles decreases with an increase in Radiation parameter. Increase in Magnetic and permeability parameters decreases and increases the velocity respectively.

Keywords: MHD, Radiation, Viscous dissipation, Vertical plate, Finite difference scheme.
