Analytical Study of MHD Mixed Convection Flow for Maxwell Nanofluid Through a Vertical Cone with Porous Material in the Presence of Variable Thermal Conductivity and Soret, Dufour Effects
Keywords:Mixed convection, Maxwell nanofluid, MHD, chemical reaction, diffusion thermo and thermal radiation
The key purpose of the existing article is to discuss the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) mixed convection flow for Maxwell nanofluid is deliberated a vertical cone with porous material. A variable thermal conductivity and Dufour, Soret effects are also taken into consideration. The modeled equations are transformed into a set of non-linear ODEs by employing similar transformable variables. These equations are then solved numerically using the shooting method, through the fourth-order Runge–Kutta integration procedure. Effects of some prominent physical parameters, such as diffusion thermo, Prandtl number, thermophoresis parameter, and magnetic parameter on the velocity, temperature, and concentration profiles are discussed graphically and numerically. The main outcomes of this investigation are that Velocity slows down with augmentation in Maxwell and magnetic parameters. Temperature increases with radiation and thermophoresis parameters and reduces with growing values of Prandtl number and Brownian motion parameters. The values of skin-friction coefficient, Nusselt number coefficient and Sherwood number coefficient are presented in table. A comparison with previously reported data is made and an excellent agreement is noted.
