MHD and Thermal Dispersion-Radiation Effects on Non-Newtonian Fluid Saturated Non-Darcy Mixed Convective Flow with Melting Effect
The problem of mixed convection along a vertical plate in a non-Newtonian fluid saturated non-Darcy porous medium in the presence of melting, thermal dispersion-radiation effects for aiding and opposing external flows is analyzed. Similarity solution for the governing equations is obtained for the flow equations in steady state. The equations are numerically solved by using Runge-kutta fourth order method coupled with shooting technique. The effects of melting (M), thermal dispersion (D)-radiation (R), inertia (F) and mixed convection (Ra/Pe) on velocity and temperature distributions are examined in the presence of magnetic parameter MH.
