Laminar Mixed Convection Flow from a Vertical Surface with Induced Magnetic Field and Convective Boundary

Open access


The objective of this investigation is to study the influence of thermal radiation and radiation absorption parameter on a mixed convection flow over a continuously moving porous vertical plate under the action of transverse applied magnetic field taking into account the induced magnetic field with convective boundary. Under certain assumptions, the solutions for the velocity field, temperature distribution and induced magnetic field are obtained. The influences of various parameters on the velocity, temperature fields and on induced magnetic fields are studied graphically. It is also found that the dimensionless Prandtl number, Grashof number, Schmidt number and magnetic parameter have an appreciable influence on the independent variables.
