ABSTRACT:

A study of the effect of stratified Rivlin-Ericksen fluid on MHD free convection flow past a vertical porous plate with heat and mass transfer and neglecting induced magnetic field in comparison to applied magnetic field is investigated. The velocity, temperature and concentration distributions are derived and discussed numerically with the helps of graphs and tables. It is observed that velocity increases with the increase in Gr (Grashof number) and K (Permeability parameter), but it decreases with the increase in M(Magnetic parameter). The velocity increases with the increase in Visco-elastic parameter) up to y = 2, then decreases.

A study of the effect of stratified Rivlin-Ericksen fluid on MHD free convection flow past a vertical porous plate with heat and mass transfer and neglecting induced magnetic field in comparison to applied magnetic field is investigated. The velocity, temperature and concentration distributions are derived and discussed numerically with the helps of graphs and tables. It is observed that velocity increases with the increase in Gr (Grashof number) and K (Permeability parameter), but it decreases with the increase in M(Magnetic parameter). The velocity increases with the increase in Visco-elastic parameter) up to y = 2, then decreases.
