HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER OF MICROPOLAR NANO FLUID FLOW OVER AN INCLINED SURFACE WITH CHEMICAL REACTION AND HEAT GENERATION

Abstract: In this paper, MicropolarNanofluid boundary layer flow over inclined surface by considering the effects of chemical reaction and heat generation is investigated. Nanofluid model is based on Buongiorno model for the thermal efficiencies of the fluid flows in presence of Brownian motions and thermophoresis effects. The nonlinear problem for MicropolarNanofluid flow over inclined channelis modeled by considering portent flow parameters to intensified boundary layers, to study the heat and mass transfer phenomenon. The governing nonlinear partial differential equations are reduced to nonlinear ordinary differential equations and then solved numerically by means of the Keller-Box method. A comparison of the obtained results in the absence of the incorporated effects is performed with the published results of Khan and Pop and found in a good agreement. Numerical and graphical results are also presented in tables and graphs. It is found that Skin friction coefficient, reduced Nusselt number and reduced Sherwood number are suppressed by the incorporated physical parameters.
