Abstract

Several boundary layer flowswith heat and mass transfer problems do arise from a pebble bed nuclear reactor system. In this study, we examine the combined effects of variable thermal conductivity, thermal diffusion, diffusion thermo, heat source, chemical reaction and fluid rotation on hydromagnetic mixed convective flow with heat and mass transfer over a vertical plate embedded in porous medium. The governing partial differential equations have been transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations by employing the similarity transformation and solved numerically using the Runge–Kutta–Fehlberg method with a shooting technique. Pertinent results obtained are presented graphically and in tabular form with respect to variation in various thermophysical parameters. A comparison of the special case of this study with the previously published work shows excellent agreement.
