Hall Effect on Two-Phase Laminar Boundary Layer flow of Dusty Liquid due to Stretching of an Elastic Flat Sheet

Abstract

The present investigation is concerned with the effect of Hall current on boundary layer two-phase flow of an electrically conducting dusty fluid over a permeable stretching sheet in the presence of a strong magnetic field. The boundary layer approximation is employed for mathematical modeling. The governing partial differential equations are reduced to a set of ordinary differential equations using suitable similarity transformations. Subsequent equations are solved numerically by using Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg fourth-fifth order method. A comprehensive parametric study is conducted to reveal the tendency of solutions. It is found that the mass concentration of dust particles can be used as a control parameter to control the friction factor at the sheet. The influence of suction and injection are opposite on the momentum boundary layer growth.
