MAKINDE, O. D.. On MHD mixed convection with soret and dufour effects past a vertical plate embedded in a porous medium. Lat. Am. appl. res. [online]. 2011, vol.41, n.1, pp.63-68. ISSN 0327-0793.

The paper studies the mixed convection flow of an incompressible Boussinesq fluid under the simultaneous action of buoyancy and transverse magnetic field with Soret and Dufour effects over a vertical porous plate with constant heat flux embedded in a porous medium. Under suitable nondimensionalization, the governing non-linear coupled differential equations are solved numerically using shooting quadrature. Tabular and graphical results are presented and discussed quantitatively. Results obtained which compare favourably well with published data show that the local skin friction is enhanced by the Sorets and Dufour effects.
