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 ...
New developments in fluid mechanics and its engineering applications
Fluid mechanics is an active field of research with many unsolved or partially solved problems in science and engineering. Fluid mechanics can be mathematically complex. Sometimes the problems can best be solved by ...
The flow of a variable viscosity fluid down an inclined plane with a free surface
The effect of a temperature dependent variable viscosity fluid flow down an inclined plane with a free surface is investigated.The fluid film is thin, so that lubrication approximation may be applied. Convective heating ...
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 ...
