Effects of Mass Transfer and Heat Flux on Convective Flow Past a Moving Vertical Cylinder with Chemical Reaction

R. K. Deka and Arun Chaliha

Abstract—This paper presents an exact solution to onedimensional unsteady natural convection flow over a moving vertical cylinder under the combined buoyancy effects of heat flux and mass transfer along with chemical reaction is investigated. The dimensionless governing equations are solved by Laplace Transform technique. Graphical results for the velocity profiles, temperature, concentration, skin friction and Sherwood number are obtained and discussed for various physical parameters such as the chemical reaction parameter, Prandtl number, Schmidt number, thermal Grashof number, mass Grashof number and time

Index Terms—Natural convection, mass transfer, heat flux, chemical reaction, vertical cylinder and Laplace transform.
