Mixed convection flow ; magnetohydrodynamics


Mixed convection flow is the combination between forced and free convection flow. In this research, we consider a magnetohydrodynamics in boundary layer flow of viscous fluid past a vertical plate. The presence of magnetic field will be applied in the boundary layer flow. It is assumed that the flat plate is no slip condition, heat generation and viscous dissipation are neglected. We get the boundary layer governing equations under the Boussinesq and boundary layer approximation. Furthermore, we are reduced the boundary layer equations to a dimensionless form by applying several non-dimensional variable and transformed into similar equations. Based on the numerical result, the values of velocity profile increase when the magnetic parameter increase and the values of temperature pr ofile decrease when the magnetic parameters increase. Otherwise, the value of velocity profile and temperature profile decrease when prandtl number increases
