Thermophoretic Analysis and Non-uniform Heat Source in Hydromagnetic Micropolar Fluid Flow Passing an Inclined Sheet in a Porous Medium
The investigation of heat and mass transfer engaging micropolar fluid is applicable in biomedical and engineering activities such as in blood flows, fluid flow in brain and porous pipe design. This research work reports on thermophoretic and non-uniform heat source in hydromagnetic micropolar fluid flow passing an inclined sheet in porous media and viscous dissipation. The work is analyzed based on the assumption of twodimensional, steady, viscous, incompressible flow through inclined porous media sheet with the impact of uniform external
magnetic field. Similarity conversion approach has been adopted to simplify the modelled equations and then solved numerically by means of shooting scheme together with integrating FehlbergRunge-Kutta algorithm in company of shooting techniques. Various graphs have been sketched while tables are constructed to highlight and discuss the impact of the main controlling parameters influencing the flow, thermal and solutal fields. Besides, the current results depict a strong relationship with previously published works in the literature under limiting situations. It is found that the impact of thermophoretic reactive micropolar fluid is to enhance mass transfer, velocity and microrotation fields while lowering the viscosity of the species mass boundary layer
