Lie group analysis of chemical reaction effects on MHD free convection dissipative fluid flow past an inclined porous surface

Lie group analysis of chemical reaction effects on MHD free convection dissipative fluid flow... Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to study chemical reaction and heat and mass transfer effects on steady free convection flow in an inclined porous plate in the presence of MHD and viscous dissipation through the application of scaling group of transformation and numerical method. Design/methodology/approach – The fourth-order Runge-Kutta along with the shooting method is employed in the numerical solution of the governing equations. Findings – The magnetic field parameter, the permeability of porous medium and the viscous dissipation are demonstrated to exert a more significant effect on the flow field and, thus, on the heat transfer from the plate to the fluid. Originality/value – The problem is relatively original. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat and Fluid Flow Emerald Publishing
