Analysis of the Effect of Viscous Dissipation on the Temperature Profile of the Laminar Flow in a Channel Filled with Saturated Porous Media.
The Pacific Journal of Science and Technology, 11 (1).
The effect of viscous dissipation on the
temperature profile of the laminar flow in a
channel filled with saturated porous media is
analyzed. The source of inspiration of this work
could be found in Makinde et al. . In this new
paper, we include the viscous dissipation term
which has an effect on the temperature profile of
the fluid flow in the channel. The Brinkman model
was employed. Velocity and temperature profiles
are obtained for large Brinkman number using
Pascal programming language and Maple
software packages. Generally our result shows
that the fluid temperature decreases with a
decrease in porous media permeability (s
increases) as the Brinkman number Br,
