HOMOTOPY ANALYSIS METHOD FOR CHEMICAL REACTION AND THERMOPHORESIS EFFECTS ON HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER FOR MHD HIEMENZ FLOW OVER A POROUS WEDGE IN THE PRESENCE OF HEAT RADIATION


An analytical technique, namely, the homotopy analysis method, is applied to analyze the effect of chemical reaction and thermophoresis particle deposition on the MHD mixed convective heat and mass transfer for a Hiemenz flow over a porous wedge in the presence of heat radiation. The fluid is assumed to be viscous and incompressible. Analytical and numerical calculations are carried out for different values of dimensionless parameters, and an analysis of the results obtained shows that the flow field is influenced appreciably by the buoyancy ratio as well as by the thermal diffusion and suction/injection parameters. The effects of these parameters on the process characteristics are investigated methodically, and typical results are illustrated. An explicit, totally analytical, and uniformly valid solution is derived which agrees well with numerical results.
