Thin Film Flow of Micropolar Fluid in a Permeable Medium
AbstractThe thin film flow of micropolar fluid in a porous medium under the influence of thermophoresis with the heat effect past a stretching plate is analyzed. Micropolar fluid is assumed as a base fluid and the plate is considered to move with a linear velocity and subject to the variation of the reference temperature and concentration. The latitude of flow is limited to being two-dimensional and is steadily affected by sensitive fluid film size with the effect of thermal radiation. The basic equations of fluid flow are changed through the similarity variables into a set of nonlinear coupled differential equations with physical conditions. The suitable transformations for the energy equation is used and the non-dimensional form of the temperature field are different from the published work. The problem is solved by using Homotopy Analysis Method (HAM). The effects of radiation parameter R, vortex-viscosity parameter Δ, permeability parameter Mr, microrotation parameter Gr, Soret number Sr, thermophoretic parameter τ, inertia parameter Nr, Schmidt number Sc, and Prandtl number Pr are shown graphically and discussed.
