Abstract:

The effect of heat source/sink on magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) laminar flow of an incompressible micropolar fluid over an unsteady stretching sheet with chemical reaction is investigated. Using the similarity transformations, the governing equations have been transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations. These differential equations are highly nonlinear which cannot be solved analytically. Therefore, fourth order Runge-Kutta method along with shooting technique has been used for solving it. Numerical results are obtained for the skin-friction coefficient, the local Nusselt number and concentration as well as the velocity, temperature and concentration profiles for different values of the governing parameters, namely, unsteadiness parameter, material parameter, magnetic parameter, Prandtl number, heat source/sink parameter, Schmidt number and chemical reaction parameter.

Keywords: Unsteady flow, Heat and Mass Transfer, Micropolar fluid, MHD, Stretching sheet, Heat source or Sink, Chemical reaction.
