Effects of Thermal Radiation on Temperature and Concentration on MHD Free Convection Flow Past a Vertical Porous Plate in the Presence of Chemical Reaction and Heat Source Parameter

Received Date:06 February 2021, Accepted Date:02 May 2021, Published Date:12 May 2021


Objective: To study the effects of chemical reaction and heat source parameter on MHD Free Convection Flow Past a Vertical Porous Plate. Method: The problem is represented by coupled non-direct fractional differential conditions. The non-dimensional conditions of the issue have been tackled mathematically utilizing the Finite-Element strategy. Findings: The effects of governing parameters such as chemical reaction, heat source, permeability, radiation and many others are discussed quantitatively with the help of graphs in these flow fields like velocity, temperature, concentration with the help of skin friction, Nusselt number and Sherwood number. Novelty: The accurateness of the solution to the problem was verified by comparing it with the published previously. The compatibility between the results was found to be high. To strengthen the validity of the numerical results were presented in this work.
