ABSTRACT:
In this study, we analyzed the momentum and heat transfer characteristics of MHD Casson fluid flow over an inclined plate in the presence of chemical reaction, radiation and heat source/sink with buoyancy effects. The governing PDE’s are transformed as non-dimensional ODE’s using suitable transformation and resulting equations are solved using Perturbation technique. The effects of various non-dimensional governing parameters on momentum, temperature, concentration fields along Nusselt, friction factor and Sherwood numbers are discussed and exhibited through graphs. Results indicate that the rising values of radiation parameter enhance the velocity and temperature fields. It is also found that increase in the heat source parameter and inclined plate enhances the velocity profile. Comparisons with existed results are presented.
