Abstract

Effects of variable viscosity and thermal conductivity on a steady two dimensional MHD free convective and mass transfer flow past an inclined semi-infinite surface in presence of heat generation, viscous dissipation and Joule dissipation has been studied. Both the fluid viscosity and thermal conductivity are assumed to vary as inverse linear functions of temperature. Using similarity transformations the governing partial differential equations of motion are transformed into ordinary differential equations which are solved numerically together with the boundary conditions by applying shooting method. The numerical results are presented graphically for different values of parameters entering into the problem.
