Abstract

In this study, effect of thermal radiation on the entropy generation rate of a hydromagnetic incompressible viscous flow through porous channel has been studied. The governing equations are formulated, non-dimensionalized and solved by Adomian decomposition and Differential Transform methods. The obtained velocity and temperature profiles are used to compute the entropy generation rate and Bejan number. The influence of various flow parameters on the velocity, temperature, entropy generation rate and Bejan number are discussed graphically
