Cattaneo-Christov Heat Flux on an MHD 3D Free Convection Casson Fluid Flow Over a Stretching Sheet

D. Gowri SHANKAR, C.S.K. RAJU, M.S. Jagadeesh KUMAR & Oluwole Daniel MAKINDE
In this investigation, we analyze the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) three-dimensional (3D) flow of Casson fluid over a stretching sheet using non-Darcy porous medium with heat source/sink. We also consider the Cattaneo-Christov heat flux and Joule effect. The governing partial differential equations (PDEs) are transformed into ordinary differential equations (ODEs) using suitable transformations and solved by using the shooting technique. The effects of the non-dimensional governing parameters on velocity and temperature profiles are discussed with the graphs....

Impact of Thermophoretic Transport of Al2O3 Nanoparticles on Viscoelastic Flow of Oil-Based Nanofluid over a Porous Exponentially Stretching Surface with Activation Energy

Christian John ETWIRE, Ibrahim Yakubu SEINI, Musah RABIU & Oluwole Daniel MAKINDE
The influence of thermophoretic transport of Al2O3 nanoparticles on heat and mass transfer in viscoelastic flow of oil-based nanofluid past porous exponentially stretching surface with activation energy has been examined. Similarity technique was employed to transform the governing partial differential equations into a coupled fourth-order ordinary differential equations which were reduced to a system of first-order ordinary differential equations and then solved numerically using the fourth-order Runge-Kutta algorithm with a shooting method. The results for...

Numerical Analysis of the Transient and Non-Isothermal Channel Flow of a Third-Grade Fluid with Convective Cooling

Tiri CHINYOKA & Oluwole Daniel MAKINDE
We investigate the unsteady, non-isothermal, pressure driven channel flow of a third grade liquid subject to exothermic reactions. We assume temperature dependent fluid viscosity and also that the flow is subjected to convective cooling at the channel walls. The exothermic reactions are modelled via Arrhenius kinetics and the convective heat exchange with the ambient at the channel walls follows Newton’s law of cooling. The time-dependent, coupled, and nonlinear partial differential equations governing the flow and...

Entropy Analysis of a Variable Viscosity MHD Couette Flow Between Two Concentric Pipes with Convective Cooling

Oluwole Daniel MAKINDE & Adetayo Samuel EEGUNJOBI
This paper addresses the combined effects of the magnetic field, thermal buoyancy force, viscous dissipation, Joule heating and temperature-dependent viscosity on the Couette flow of an incompressible conducting fluid between two concentric vertical pipes. It is assumed that convective cooling occurs at the surface of the outer moving pipe while the surface of the inner fixed pipe is maintained at a constant temperature. The nonlinear equations for momentum and energy are obtained and solved numerically...
