Thermo Diffusion Effect on Three Dimensional Mhd Free Convective Flow Through A Porous Plate With Periodic Permeability

Authors(2) :-R. Panneerselvi, M. Suchithra

The analysis is made to study the effect of Thermal Diffusion on a three dimensional free convective flow with mass transfer of an incompressible viscous electrically conducting fluid past a porous vertical plate with transverse sinusoidal suction velocity. A uniform magnetic field is assumed to be applied transversely to the direction normal to the plate. The magnetic Reynolds number is considered to be small so that the induced magnetic field can be neglected. The momentum, temperature and concentration equations are non-dimensionalised and solved using perturbation technique. The graphs are plotted for various governing parameters viz, Grashof number (G), Hartmann number (M), Reynolds number (Re), Prandtl number (Pr), Schmidt number (Sc) and Soret number (Sr).
