Unsteady three-dimensional MHD flow and mass transfer in a porous space in the presence of thermal
World Applied Sciences Journal.
Unsteady three-dimensional MHD flow and mass transfer in a porous is presented here by taking into
account of thermal radiation. The governing fundamental equations are first transformed into system of
ordinary differential equations using self similar transformation and they are solved numerically by using
the sixth-order Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg method with shooting technique for some values of the physical
parameters embedded in the flow model. Important features of the flow and heat transfer characteristic
for different values of thermal radiation, magnetic field and chemical reaction are analyzed and
discussed. Numerical results for the velocities, temperature and concentration profiles for a prescribed
magnetic field, thermal radiation and chemical reaction parameters as well as the development of the
local skin-friction coefficient, local Nusselt number and Sherwood number are reported graphically for
various parametric conditions to show interesting aspect of the numerical solution.
