THERMAL DIFFUSION, RADIATION AND INCLINED MAGNETIC FIELD EFFECTS ON OSCILLATORY FLOW IN AN ASYMMETRIC CHANNEL IN PRESENCE OF HEAT SOURCE AND CHEMICAL REACTION

AJAZ AHMAD DAR, K. ELANGOVAN

Abstract


Thermal diffusion and radiation effects on the MHD oscillatory flow in presence of chemical reaction and heat source are analyzed in the present investigation. An inclined
magnetic field of uniform strength is applied to the channel. An oscillatory pressure gradient across the ends of the channel makes the flow unsteady. Regular perturbation method is adopted to solve the governing equations analytically. The influence of various apposite parameters on the flow, temperature and concentration characteristics are explained numerically and illustrated graphically. The conclusion given is based on these plots.
