ABSTRACT

This paper investigates the influence of both viscous and joules dissipation on the problem of magneto-hydrodynamic flow past a stretching porous surface embedded in a porous medium for rotating case. Using similarity approach the system of partial differential equations is transformed into ordinary differential equations which strongly depend on the magnetic parameter, stretching parameter, rotation parameter, permeability parameter and Prandtl number. The coupled differential equations are numerically simulated using the Nactsheim-Swigert shooting technique together with Runge-Kutta six order iteration schemes. The velocity and temperature profiles are discussed and presented graphically. The comparisons for dimensionless skin friction coefficient and local Nusselt number are also taken into account and discussed and presented graphically.

1. Introduction

Viscous dissipation changes the temperature distributions by playing a role like an energy source, which leads to affected heat transfer rates. The merit of the effect of viscous dissipation depends on whether the plate is being cooled or heated. Apart from the viscous dissipation in MHD flows, the Joules dissipation also acts as a volumetric heat source. Heat transfer analysis over porous surface is of much practical interest due to its abundant applications, such as, heat-treated materials traveling between a feed roll and wind-up roll, materials manufactured by extrusion, glass-fiber and paper production, cooling of metallic sheets, electronic chips and crystal growing. In view of all these aspects, Anjali Devi [1] deals with the effect of viscous and Joules dissipation on MHD flow, heat and mass transfer over a porous surface embedded in a porous medium. An analysis of thermal boundary layer in an electrically conducting fluid over a linearly stretching sheet in the presence of a constant transverse magnetic field with suction or blowing at the sheet was carried out by Chaim [2] . The viscous and joules dissipation and internal heat generation were taken into account in the energy equation. Very recently, the viscous and joules dissipation and internal heat generation were taken into account in the energy equation. Sajid et al. [3] investigated the non-similar analytic solution for MHD flow and heat transfer in a third-order fluid over a stretching sheet. He found that the skin friction coefficient decreased as the magnetic parameter or the third grade parameter increased. A mathematical analysis has been carried out on momentum and heat transfer characteristics in an incompressible, electrically conducting viscoelastic boundary layer fluid flow over a linear stretching sheet by Abel et al. [4] . A numerical reinvestigation of MHD boundary layer flow over a heated stretching sheet with variable viscosity has been analyzed by Pantokratoras [5] . Hence the present study investigates the effect viscous and Joules dissipation on MHD flow, heat and mass transfer over a porous surface embedded in a porous medium for rotating case.

2. Mathematical Analysis

Two-dimensional, nonlinear, steady, MHD laminar boundary layer flow with heat and mass transfer of a viscous, incompressible and electrically conducting fluid over a porous surface embedded in a porous medium in the presence of a transverse magnetic field including viscous and Joules dissipation is considered for investigation. An uniform transverse magnetic field of strength is applied parallel to y-axis. Consider a polymer sheet emerging out of a slit at, and subsequently being stretched, as in a polymer extrusion process. Let us assume that the speed at a point in the plate is proportional to the power of its distance from the slit and the boundary layer approximations are applicable. In writing the following equations, it is assumed that the induced magnetic field, the external electric field and the electric field due to the polarization of charges are negligible. Under these conditions, the governing boundary layer equations of momentum, energy and diffusion with viscous and Joules dissipation are
