Effects of Rotation, Radiation and Hall Current on MHD Flow of a Viscoelastic Fluid Past an Infinite Vertical Porous Plate through Porous Medium with Heat Absorption, Chemical Reaction and Variable Suction
The present study analyses the effects of Hall current and heat absorption on a viscous, incompressible, optically thick and electrically conducting viscoelastic fluid flow past an infinite vertical porous plate through porous medium in rotating system with variable suction, thermal radiation and chemical reaction in the presence of uniform magnetic field. The perturbation technique is employed to solve the governing nonlinear partial differential equations to obtain the expressions for velocity, temperature and concentration profile. With the help of graphs and tables, the effects of pertinent flow parameters on the velocity, temperature and concentration fields, shear stress, Nusselt number and Sherwood number within the boundary layer are discussed. The results reveal that the observed parameters in rotating system have a noteworthy influence on the ow, heat and mass transfer.
