MHD mixed flow of unsteady convection with radiation over a vertical porous plate: Lie group symmetry analysis

Govind R Rajput, V. S. Patil, B. P. Jadhav


In this paper, we study the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) mixed unsteady flow over a vertical porous plate. The system of non-linear partial differential equations governing the physical model is transformed into a system of non-linear ordinary differential equations via Lie group analysis. Using the Runge-Kutta fourth order method along with shooting technique the numerical analysis is carried out to study the effect of associated parameters on the velocity, temperature and concentration distribution. Computed results for the velocity, temperature and concentration distribution are discussed graphically.
