SARMA, D; AHMED, N  and  DEKA, H. MHD free convection and mass transfer flow past an accelerated vertical plate with chemical reaction in presence of radiation. Lat. Am. appl. res. [online]. 2014, vol.44, n.1, pp.01-08. ISSN 0327-0793.

This paper deals with the study of the thermal radiation and chemical reaction effects on an unsteady MHD free convective mass transfer flow past an accelerated infinite vertical plate embedded in a porous medium. The Rosseland approximation is used to describe the radiative heat flux in the energy equation. The dimensionless governing equations of motion are solved by using Laplace transform technique in closed form. Expressions for the velocity, temperature and concentration are obtained. The resulting velocity and temperature profiles as well as the skin-friction, rate of heat and mass transfer are shown graphically for different values of  the physical parameters viz., Grashof number, Prandtl number, Schmidt number, Chemical reaction parameter, Radiation parameter,  Magnetic parameter and Porosity parameter.

Keywords : MHD; Thermal Radiation; Chemical Reaction; Electrically Conducting Fluid.
