ABSTRACT

The effect of external magnetic field and internal heat generation or absorption on a steady two-dimensional natural convection flow of viscous incompressible fluid along a uniformly heated vertical wavy surface has been investigated. The governing boundary layer equations are first transformed into a non-dimensional form using suitable set of dimensionless variables. The transformed boundary layer equations are solved numerically using the implicit finite difference method, known as Keller-box scheme. Numerical results for velocity, temperature, skin friction, the rate of heat transfer are obtained for different values of the selected parameters, such as viscous dissipation parameter (Vd), heat generation parameter (Q), magnetic parameter (M) and presented graphically and discussed. Streamlines and isotherms are presented for selected values of heat generation parameter and explained.
