Abstract

Effects of thermal diffusion and radiation absorption on Magnetic Hydrodynamic Casson fluid flow over a vertical porous plate in the presence of Soret number and Chemical reaction has been studied. Finite difference method is used to find the numerical solutions of the governing equations. The effects of various parameters on the velocity, temperature and concentration profiles are discussed through graphs. It was found that velocity decreased with increase in the values of magnetic parameter, Casson fluid parameter and increased with the increase in the values of Grashof number and porosity parameter.

Keywords:
MHD casson fluid, soret number, radiation absorption, chemical reaction
