Effects of chemical reaction, thermal radiation, internal heat generation, Soret and Dufour on chemically reacting MHD boundary layer flow of heat and mass transfer past a moving vertical plate with suction/injection.
In the present analysis, we study the two-dimensional, steady, incompressible electrically conducting, laminar free convection boundary layer flow of a continuously moving vertical porous plate in a chemically reactive medium in the presence of transverse magnetic field, thermal radiation, chemical reaction, internal heat generation and Dufour and Soret effect with suction/injection. The governing nonlinear partial differential equations have been reduced to the coupled nonlinear ordinary differential equations by the similarity transformations. The problem is solved numerically using shooting techniques with the sixth order Runge-Kutta integration scheme. Comparison between the existing literature and the present study were carried out and found to be in excellent agreement. The influence of the various interesting parameters on the flow and heat transfer is analyzed and discussed through graphs in detail. The values of the local Nusselt number, Skin-friction and the Sherwood number for different physical parameters are also tabulated. Comparison of the present results with known numerical results is shown and a good agreement is observed.
