Thermophoresis particle deposition – thermal radiation interaction on natural convection heat and mass transfer from vertical permeable surfaces

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to study thermophoresis particle deposition and thermal radiation interaction on natural convection heat and mass transfer by steady boundary layer flow over an isothermal vertical flat plate embedded in a fluid saturated porous medium. Design/methodology/approach – The governing partial differential equations are transformed into non‐similar form by using special transformation and then the resulting partial differential equations are solved numerically by using an implicit finite difference method. Findings – Different results are obtained and displaced graphically to explain the effect of various physical parameters on the wall thermophoresis deposition velocity and concentration profiles. It is found that the increasing of thermal radiation parameter or dimensionless temperature ratio heats the fluid and decreases temperature gradients near permeable wall, which increases local Nusselt numbers and decreases wall thermophoresis velocities. It is also found that the effect of power indices of either temperatures or concentration enhances both local Nusselt numbers and wall thermophoresis velocities. Comparison with previously published work in the limits shows excellent agreement. Originality/value – The paper presents useful conclusions based on graphical results obtained from studying numerical solutions for thermophoresis‐thermal radiation heat and mass transfer interaction by steady, laminar boundary layer over a vertical flat plate embedded in a porous medium. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow Emerald Publishing
