Darcy–Forchheimer stretched flow of MHD Maxwell material with heterogeneous and homogeneous reactions

Original Article


The intention here is to explore the effectiveness of magnetic field and heterogeneous–homogeneous reactions in flow induced by heated sheet moving with nonlinear velocity. Constitutive expression for an incompressible Maxwell material is taken into account. Consideration of Darcy–Forchheimer relation characterizes the porous medium effect. Developed nonlinear problems are calculated for meaningful expression of velocity, temperature and concentration. Characteristics for the significant variables on the physical quantities are graphically addressed. Our analysis indicates that impacts of larger Deborah number and inertia coefficient on velocity distribution are qualitatively similar. It is also observed that concentration has reverse behavior for strength of homogeneous and heterogeneous reaction parameters.
