Steady Arrhenius Laminar Free Convective Mhd Flow And Heat Transfer Past A Vertical Stretching Sheet With Viscous Dissipation
An analysis of the effects of Arrhenius kinetics on hydromagnetic free convective flow(set up due to temperature) of an electrically conducting fluid past a vertical stretching sheet kept at constant temperature with viscous dissipation is presented. A similarity transformation is used to reduce the governing partial differential equations into a system of ordinary differential equations, which is solved numerically . The effect of various parameters on the velocity and temperature profiles as well as the skin friction and Nusselt number are presented in graphs and tables. It was shown that the velocity and temperature increases as local Eckert number (or viscous dissipation parameter) increases.
