Double Diffusive Natural Convective Flow over a Vertical Plate with Chemical Reaction


Chemically reactive fluid flow over a vertical plate placed in a thermally stratified medium is presented here. A parametric study illustrating the influence of Prandtl number, Schmidt number, buoyancy ratio parameter, stratification parameter and chemical reaction parameter on the velocity, temperature, concentration profiles are studied. The chemical reaction parameter increases, the velocity is found to decreases. From the numerical value, we conclude that the variation between the steady state and temporal maximum increases gradually as S increases.

Keywords: Chemical Reaction, Nusselt Number, Prandtl Number, Thermal Stratification, Vertical Plate
