Natural convection of viscoelastic fluid from a cone embedded in a porous medium with viscous dissipation
We study natural convection from a downward pointing cone in a viscoelastic fluid embedded in a porous medium. The fluid properties are numerically computed for different viscoelastic, porosity, Prandtl and Eckert numbers.The ...
Analysis of thermal stability in a convecting and radiating two-step reactive slab
This paper investigates the combined effects of convective and radiative heat loss on thermal stability of a rectangular slab of combustible materials with internal heat generation due to a two-step exothermic chemical ...
Computational modelling and similarity reduction of equations for transient fluid flow and heat transfer with variable properties
We consider a system of coupled partial differential equations describing transient fluid flow and heat transfer with variable flow properties. Classical Lie point symmetry analysis of this system resulted in admitted ...
