Effects of Viscosity, Thermal Conductivity, and Heat Source on MHD Convective Heat Transfer in a Vertical Channel with Thermal Slip Condition
The present paper aims to study the effects of nonuniform fluid viscosity and thermal conductivity on MHD flow and heat transfer of fluid in a vertical channel with heat source by considering thermal slip boundary conditions. Consideration of temperature-dependent viscosity, thermal conductivity, and magnetic parameter yields a highly nonlinear coupled system of partial differential equations. The coupled nonlinear partial differential equations governing the problem are reduced to a system of coupled highly nonlinear higher order ordinary differential equations by applying suitable similarity transformations. The system of higher order ordinary differential equations is then solved by employing Runge–Kutta sixth-order method.
