Gbeminiyi Musibau Sobamowo, A. T. Akinshilo


In this paper, double diffusive squeezing unsteady flow of electrically conducting nanofluid between two parallel disks under slip and temperature jump condition is analyzed using the homotopy perturbation method. The obtained solutions from the analysis are used to investigate the effects of the Brownian motion parameter, thermophoresis parameter, Hartmann number, Lewis number and pressure gradient parameters, slip and temperature jump boundary conditions on the behavior of the nanofluid. Also, the results of the homotopy perturbation method are compared to the results in the literature and good agreements are established. This study is significant to the advancements of nanofluidics such as energy conservation, friction reduction and micro mixing biological samples.
