transfer past a vertical plate embedded in a porous medium.
Journal of Zhejiang University-SCIENCE A.
A study has been carried out to obtain the solutions for hydromagnetic mixed convection stagnation point
flow with radiative heat and mass transfer past a vertical plate embedded in a porous medium. The
governing two dimensional equations are transformed using a similarity transformation and then solved
numerically by shooting method coupled with Runge-Kutta iteration technique. Comparison with
previously published work is performed and full agreement is obtained. A parametric study illustrating
the influence of the magnetic field parameter, thermal radiation parameter, thermal Grashof number,
Grashof numbers, Prandtl number, Schmidt number, on the velocity, temperature, and concentration field
as well as the local friction coefficient, the local Nusselt number and the Sherwood number is carried out.
The results are illustrated graphically and in tabular form to depict special features of the solutions.
