Unsteady Hydromagnetic Natural Convection Flow past an Impulsively Moving Vertical Plate with Newtonian Heating in a Rotating System

It is well known that the characteristics of heat transfer are dependent on the thermal boundary conditions. Here a conjugate convective type flow or Newtonian heating is considered. Newtonian heating is a kind of wall-to-ambient heating process where the rate of heat transfer from the bounding surface with a finite heat capacity is proportional to the local surface temperature. This type of situation occurs in many important engineering devices such as in heat exchangers, gas turbines and also in seasonal thermal energy storage systems. Therefore, the interaction of conduction-convection coupled effects is of much significance from practical point of view and it must be considered when evaluating the conjugate heat transfer processes in many engineering applications. Merkin (1994) initiated the study of free convection boundary layer flow over a vertical surface with Newtonian heating while Lesnic et al. (1999, 2000) analyzed free convection boundary layer flow past vertical and horizontal surfaces in a porous medium generated by Newtonian heating. Chaudhary and Jain (2006) investigated unsteady free convection flow past an impulsively started vertical plate with Newtonian heating. Salleh et al. (2009) discussed forced convection boundary layer flow at a forward stagnation point with Newtonian heating. Narahari and Ishak (2011) investigated the effects of thermal radiation on unsteady free convection flow of an optically thick fluid past a moving vertical plate with Newtonian heating. They considered three cases of interest, namely, (i) impulsive movement of the plate; (ii) uniformly accelerated movement of the plate and (iii) exponentially accelerated

Natural Convection Heat and Mass Transfer Flow with Hall Current, Rotation, Radiation and Heat Absorption Past an Accelerated Moving Vertical Plate with Ramped Temperature

Natural Convection Heat and Mass Transfer Flow with Hall Current, Rotation, Radiation and Heat Absorption Past an Accelerated Moving Vertical Plate with Ramped Temperature

It is noticed that when the density of an electrically conducting fluid is low and/or applied magnetic field is strong, Hall current plays a vital role in determining flow-features of the fluid flow problems because it induces secondary flow in the flow-field (Sutton and Sherman (1965). Taking into account of this fact, Aboeldahab and Elbarbary (2001) and Seth et al. (2012) investigated the effects of Hall current on hydromagnetic free convection boundary layer flow past a flat plate considering different aspects of the problem. It is noteworthy that Hall current induces secondary flow in the flow-field which is also the characteristics of Coriolis force. Therefore, it is essential to compare and contrast the effects of these two agencies and also to study their combined effects on such fluid flow problems. Narayana et al. (2013) studied the effects of Hall current and radiation- absorption on MHD natural convection heat and mass transfer flow of a micropolar fluid in a rotating frame of reference. Recently, Seth et al. (2013a) investigated the effects of Hall current and rotation on unsteady hydromagnetic natural convection flow of a viscous, incompressible, electrically conducting and heat absorbing fluid past an impulsively moving vertical plate with ramped temperature in a porous medium taking into account the effects of thermal diffusion. Aim of the present investigation is to study unsteady hydromagnetic natural convection heat and mass transfer flow with Hall current of a viscous, incompressible, electrically conducting, temperature dependent heat absorbing and optically thin heat radiating fluid past an accelerated moving vertical plate through fluid saturated porous medium in a rotating environment when temperature of the plate has a temporarily ramped profile. This problem has not yet received any attention from the researchers although natural convection heat and mass transfer flow of a heat absorbing and radiating fluid resulting from such ramped temperature profile of a plate moving with time dependent velocity may have strong bearings on numerous problems of practical interest where initial temperature profiles are of much significance in designing of so many hydromagnetic devices and in several industrial processes occurring at high temperatures where the effects of thermal radiation and heat absorption play a vital role in the fluid flow characteristics.

The effects of thermal radiation and viscous dissipation on MHD heat and mass diffusion flow past an oscillating vertical plate embedded in a porous medium with variable surface conditions

In all the investigations mentioned above, viscous mechanical dissipation is neglected. A number of authors have considered viscous heating effects on Newtonian flows. Mahajan et al. [25] reported the influence of viscous heating dissipation effects in natural convective flows, showing that the heat transfer rates are reduced by an increase in the dissipation parameter.

However, in engineering and technology, there are occasions where a heat source is needed to maintain the desired heat transfer. At the same time, the suction velocity has also to be normal to the porous plate.

Natural convection flow near a vertical plate that applies a shear stress to a viscous fluid.

Free convection flow past a vertical plate has been extensively studied and continues to receive much attention due to its industrial and technological applications. It is encountered, for instance, in the cooling of nuclear reactors or in the study of environmental heat transfer processes. Soundalgekar and Gupta [1] and Singh and Kumar [2] studied the free convection flow over an accelerated, respectively exponentially accelerated, infinite vertical plate, while Merkin [3] presented a discussion on the similarity solutions. Transient free convection flow past an infinite vertical plate has been studied, for instance, by Ingham [4] and Das et al. [5]. Many other unsteady free convection flows over an infinite plate, taking into account radiative, porous or magnetic effects, have also been investigated under different sets of boundary conditions. Some of the most recent and interesting results seem to be those obtained by Toki and Tokis [6], Toki [7], Rajesh [8], Narahari and Ishak [9], Narahari and Nayan [10], Samiulhaq et al. [11,12] and Narahari and Debnath [13]. In their work, Narahari and Debnath, for instance, consider the unsteady magnetohydrodynamic free convection flow with constant heat flux and heat generation or absorption, and obtain exact solutions when the plate is exponentially or uniformly accelerated. Free convective boundary layer flows with Newtonian heating or thermal slip conditions have been numerically investigated by Uddin et al. [14], respectively Khan et al. [15]. However, in all these works, boundary conditions for velocity are imposed, although in some problems, the force applied on the boundary is specified. In this case, unlike the usual ‘‘no slip’’ condition, a boundary condition on the shear stress has to be used.

Nanofluid Flow past an Unsteady Permeable Shrinking Sheet with Heat Source or Sink and Newtonian Heating in a Porous Medium

Nanofluid Flow past an Unsteady Permeable Shrinking Sheet with Heat Source or Sink and Newtonian Heating in a Porous Medium

The influence of internal heat generation in a problem reveals that it affects the temperature distribution strongly. Internal heat generation is related in the fields of disposal of nuclear waste, storage of radioactive materials, nuclear reactors safely analysis, fire and combustion studies and in many industrial processes. Consideration of internal heat generation becomes a key factor in many engineering applications. Heat generation can be assumed to be constant or space temperature dependent. Crepeau and Clarksean (1997) applied a space dependent heat generation in their study on flow and heat transfer from vertical plate. They observed that the exponentially decaying heat generation model can be used in mixtures where a radioactive material is surrounded by inert alloys. Makinde (2011) computed similarity solutions for natural convection from a moving vertical plate with internal heat generation. It was found that an increase in the exponentially decaying internal heat generation causes a further increase in both velocity and thermal boundary layer thicknesses. Ganga et al (2015) studied the effects of internal heat generation or absorption on magnetohydrodynamic and radiative boundary layer flow of nanofluid over a vertical plate with viscous and ohmic dissipation.

Effects of Thermal Radiation and Chemical Reaction on MHD Free Convection Flow past a Flat Plate with Heat Source and Convective Surface Boundary Condition

Effects of Thermal Radiation and Chemical Reaction on MHD Free Convection Flow past a Flat Plate with Heat Source and Convective Surface Boundary Condition

The previous studies, dealing with the transport phenomena of momentum and heat transfer, have dealt with one component phases which posses a natural tendency to reach equilibrium conditions. However, there are activities, especially in industrial and chemical engineering processes, where a system contains two or more components whose concentrations vary from point to point. In such a system there is a natural tendency for mass to be transferred, minimizing the concentration differences within the system and the transport of one constituent, from a region of higher concentration to that of a lower concentration. This is called mass transfer. Stokes [15] gave the first exact solution to the Navier–Stokes equation for the flow of a viscous incompressible fluid past an impulsively started infinite horizontal plate. Panda et al [16] analyzed an unsteady free convictive flow and mass transfer of a rotating elastic-viscous liquid through porous media past a vertical porous plate. Sattar [17] discussed the free convection and mass transfer flow though a porous medium past an infinite vertical porous plate with time dependent temperature and concentration. The application of boundary layer techniques to mass transfer has been of considerable assistance in developing the theory of separation processes and chemical kinetics. The phenomenon of heat and mass transfer has been the object of extensive research due to its applications in Science and Technology.

A Study on Mixed Convective, MHD Flow from a Vertical Plate Embedded in Non-Newtonian Fluid Saturated Non- Darcy Porous Medium with Melting Effect

The study of an electrically conducting fluid in engineering applications is of considerable interest, especially in metallurgical and metal working processes or in the separation of molten metals from non-metallic inclusions by the application of a magnetic field. The phase change problem occurs in casting welding, purification of metals and in the formation of ice layers on the oceans as well as on aircraft surfaces. Because of its importance, accurate and robust methods of modelling phase change problems are of great interest. The velocity field in the liquid phase has a significant effect in determining the quality of the final product, and therefore, it is a great interest to study the fluid and solid phases. Recently, a significant number of studies have been conducted using computational fluid dynamics to enhance the physical and understand mathematical modelling capabilities in liquid – solid phase change as mentioned in introduction to convection in porous medium. High temperature plasmas, cooling of nuclear reactors, liquid metal fluids, magneto hydrodynamics (MHD) accelerators, and power generation systems are important applications for radiation heat transfer from a vertical wall to conductive grey fluids.

Unsteady MHD free convective heat transfer flow along a vertical porous flat plate with internal heat generation

Unsteady MHD free convective heat transfer flow along a vertical porous flat plate with internal heat generation

Recently, Alam and Huda [18] analyzed a new approach for local similarity solutions of an unsteady hydromagnetic free convective heat transfer flow along a permeable flat surface.But the effect of internal heat generation was absent on the flow field. So, the main objective of the present study is to extend the work of Alam and Huda [18] to free con- vective heat transfer flow along a vertical porous flat plate with internal heat generation/absorption.This problem has not been introduced in the open literature, despite its fundamental significance. Using similarity transforma- tion, the governing partial differential equations are reduce to a non-linear ordinary differential equation which are solved numerically by applying sixth-order Runge-Kutta method with Nachtsheim-Swigert shooting iteration technique.

Numerical investigation of slip flow effects on unsteady hydromagnetic flow over a stretching surface with thermal radiation

The boundary layer flow past a stretching surface in the presence of a magnetic field has much practical relevance in polymer processing and in other several industrial processes. Along with this, a new dimension is added to the study of flow and heat transfer effects over a stretching surface by considering the effect of thermal radiation. Thermal radiation effects may play an important role in controlling heat transfer in industry where the quality of the final product depends to a great extend on the heat controlling factors and the knowledge of radiative heat transfer in the system can perhaps lead to a desired product with sought qualities. High temperature plasmas, cooling of nuclear reactors and liquid metal fluids are some important applications of radiative heat transfer. The radiative flow of an electrically conducting fluid with high temperature in the presence of a magnetic field are encountered in electrical power generation, astrophysical flows, solar power technology, space vehicle re-entry, nuclear engineering applications and in other industrial areas.

Unsteady Free Convective Flow of a Temperature Varying Electrically Conducting Fluid

Unsteady Free Convective Flow of a Temperature Varying Electrically Conducting Fluid

Borkakati and Srivastava[1] investigated free and forced convection and MHD flow. In a fluid, the variation of temperature causes variation of density. This in turn raises force of buoyancy which governs the fluid motion. This type of unsteady fluid motion under the action of uniform magnetic field applied externally reduces the heat transfer and the skin friction considerably. This process of reduction of heat transfer and skin friction of the fluid motion has various engineering applications such as nuclear reactor, power transformation etc. Borkakati and Chakraborty[2] investigated the nature and behaviour of a viscous, incompressible, electrically conducting fluid over a flat plate which is moving with a uniform speed in a quiescent fluid in presence of a uniform magnetic field. In their conclusion they have found that for an incompressible fluid, both the fluid velocity and temperature gradually decreases with the increase of viscosity parameter. Elbashbeshy[3] studied heat and mass transfer in the same problem in presence of variable transverse magnetic field. The unsteady problem in a channel was studied numerically by Attia[4] with temperature dependence viscosity. He also considered steady state solution for velocity and temperature. In his study he analyzed the effect of viscosity parameter defined as ratio of viscosity of the fluid at two different temperatures.
