Heat and mass transfer characteristics on newtonian fluid over a vertical porous plate in conducting field with ramped boundary condition

Rama Krishna Reddy P and Raju M. C

An exact solution for an unsteady MHD free convection flow of a viscous incompressible, electrically conducting, optically thick radiating and heat absorbing fluid past an accelerated moving vertical plate with variable ramped wall temperature and as well as ramped wall concentration in the presence of Hall current is investigated. The dimensionless governing equations are solved in the closed form using Laplace transform technique. The expressions for the fluid velocity, fluid concentration and fluid temperature are obtained. The effects of various physical parameters on fluid velocities, fluid temperature and fluid concentration are displayed graphically where as those of shear stress and rate of heat transfer at the plate are presented in the tabular form.
