Evaluation of Nonlinear Viscosity Property in a Magnetized Micropolar Fluid Flow, Experiencing Slip, and Convective Heating Properties

Author(s): Olumuyiwa A Agbolade, Ephesus O Fatunmbi


The impact of nonlinear dynamic fluid characteristics on the magnetized motion of the micropolar fluid is explored in the current work. The transport phenomenon is configured on a vertical lengthening plate influenced by thermal radiation, wall slip, and convective heating properties. A mathematical model is set up to describe the problem practically and then converted from the initial partial into ordinary derivatives of order three using a similarity transformation approach. Thence, a numerical tool is sought for the solution of the transformed model for appropriate discussion of results. The outcomes of the numerical solution are represented graphically and deliberated upon for usage in various industrial and engineering operations. It is found that there exists a shrinking thermal boundary layer and momentum boundary structure as the Prandtl number enhances. Hence, a cool surface is found with a higher Prandtl number, and the flow velocity is reduced as well. A depreciation of the momentum boundary layer structure occurs as the viscosity variation term enhances.
