Entropy Generation on MHD Eyring–Powell Nanofluid through a Permeable Stretching Surface
AbstractIn this article, entropy generation of an Eyring–Powell nanofluid through a permeable stretching surface has been investigated. The impact of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and nonlinear thermal radiation are also taken into account. The governing flow problem is modeled with the help of similarity transformation variables. The resulting nonlinear ordinary differential equations are solved numerically with the combination of the Successive linearization method and Chebyshev spectral collocation method. The impact of all the emerging parameters such as Hartmann number, Prandtl number, radiation parameter, Lewis number, thermophoresis parameter, Brownian motion parameter, Reynolds number, fluid parameter, and Brinkmann number are discussed with the help of graphs and tables. It is observed that the influence of the magnetic field opposes the flow. Moreover, entropy generation profile behaves as an increasing function of all the physical parameters. View Full-Text
