Exploration of Heat and Mass Transfer in the Convective Slip Flow of Non-Newtonian Casson Fluid

Original Paper


The present aim is concerned with heat and mass transfer of an unsteady convective slip flow of Casson fluid flow through a permeable vertical plate with heat source. The influence of radiation absorption and chemical reaction is also taken into consideration. Time depending governing equations are solved by implicit finite difference method using MATLAB. Results for various fluid flow parameter characteristics such as Casson fluid parameter, velocity slip parameter, Biot number, convection diffusion parameter, porosity parameter, Grashof number, heat source and radiative absorption parameter are presented through graphs and tables delineating the effect of various parameters characterizing the flow.
