ABSTRACT

The present paper contains a numerical study of MHD flow, heat, and mass transfer of micropolar fluid over a porous stretching sheet. Governing differential equations are partially decoupled using a similarity transformation, which are solved using the finite element method. The effects of suction, Hartman number, permeability parameter, and Schmidt number on the velocity, microrotation, temperature, and mass transfer functions have been studied. The numerical values of the skin friction and the rate of heat transfer are shown in tables. The Hartman number governing the magnetic field is found to be effective in simulation of heat and mass transfer concept. The flow regime finds applications in magnetoenergy systems, geothermal systems, crude oil extraction, ground water pollution, etc.
