Abstract:

MHD casson fluid of viscous, incompressible, electrically-conducting fluid past an inclined moving plate in the presence of a uniform transverse magnetic field and thermal and concentration buoyancy effects is considered. The governing partial differential equations are reduced to a system of non-linear ordinary differential equations which are solved analytically using perturbation technique. The numerical results are presented graphically for different values of the parameters such as Chemical reaction parameter, Radiation parameter, Heat parameter, Casson parameter, Schmidt number, Grashof number, Prandtl number, Hartmann Parameter, and modified Grashof numbers etc are discussed. Finally the numerical values of skin-friction, Nusselt number and Sherwood number are shown in tabular form.
