Penetrative convection due to absorption of radiation in a magnetic nanofluid saturated porous layer

1 Introduction Nanofluids are the liquids containing a suspension of nanoparticles (having a size typically in the range 1-100 nm) in a base fluid. The base fluid can be an organic solvent or water, and the choice of base fluid depends on the applications for which the nanofluid is prepared. A wide range of applications for nanofluid can be found in several sectors including transportation, commercial, residential, industrial, and so on. Owing to the importance of nanofluids in these sectors, the area nanofluid convection in porous media attracted the

Numerical solution through mathematical modelling of unsteady MHD flow past a semi-infinite vertical moving plate with chemical reaction and radiation

walls of arbitrary thickness, subject to an applied magnetic field has been investigated [ 14 ]. An investigation of unsteady hydromagnetic natural convection heat and mass transfer flow past an impulsively moving infinite vertical plate embedded in a uniform porous medium when the temperature of the plate has a temporarily ramped profile has been carried out [ 15 ]. The effects of a magnetic field on the three-dimensional flow of a nanofluid having a suspension of ferrous nanoparticles within the framework of a non-uniformly thickened sheet in a slip flow regime has
