MHD Double-Diffusive and Viscous Dissipative Boundary Layer Flow over a Vertical Plate with Heat Source, Reacting Species, and Thermal and Mass Transfer Gradients

Fluid flow problems with convective boundary conditions have applications in the science and engineering worlds. Specifically, they are relevant in the heating and cooling processes observed in glass fiber production, and aerodynamic extrusion. This paper investigates the problem of steady MHD double-diffusive, viscous dissipative boundary layer flow over a vertical plate with heat source, reacting species, and thermal and mass transfer gradients effects. Usually, the problem of flow through porous media is examined using the Boussinesq’s approximations. The governing nonlinear partial differential equations are coupled and complex. Making them tractable, they are linearized into a set of ordinary differential equations using the similarity transform. The evolving set of ordinary differential equations is solved numerically using the fifth-order Runge-Kutta Fehlberg Method and Maple 21 mathematical computational software. The results obtained for the concentration, temperature, and velocity are presented graphically. The analysis of results shows, amongst others, that an increase in the magnetic field parameter increases the temperature and concentration, but decreases the velocity of the fluid; an increase in the Biot number increases the temperature, concentration, and velocity of the fluid; an increases in the concentration difference parameter increases the temperature, but decreases the concentration and velocity of the fluid; an increase in the Eckert number increases the concentration, but decreases the temperature and velocity of the fluid.
