Heat and Mass Transfer Effects Past a Vertical Cone with Electric Conductivity


Numerical investigation of the transient natural convective double diffusion in a Walter-B viscoelastic fluid from a vertical cone with electric conductivity is introduced. Numerical analysis for non dimensional concentration, velocity and temperature fields by utilizing implicit finite difference scheme have been studied for the effect of electric conductivity parameter, Prandtl number (Pr), viscoelasticity parameter. The present discussion fixates on the local Nusselt number skin-friction and Sherwood number. It is observed that the electric conductivity has critical impact on the effect on the viscoelastic fluid flow past vertical cone proximate to the cone surface. Our numerical conclusions are compared with anterior work and a good acquiescent is descried.

Keywords: Cone, Finite Difference Method, Non-Darcian Porous Medium, Viscoelasticity
