  • Abstract

    In this work we considered the effect of viscous dissipation in the presence of magnetic field on free convection flow of an incompressible viscous laminar fluid past a continuously moving semi-infinite flat plate. A similarity transformation is used to reduce the governing partial differential equations into a system of ordinary differential equations, which is solved numerically. The effect of Grashof number, Prandtl number, Eckert number, Schmidt number and magnetic field parameter on two-dimensional flow and results for the velocity, temperature and concentration distribution as well as the skin-friction and rate of heat transfer and Sherwood number with pertinent results on the effect of various parameters controlling the system are shown graphically and presented in tabular form.
