Abstract

The problem of free convection flow with diffusion-thermo and Navier slip condition in the presence of Newtonian heating in a vertical porous channel has been studied. Due to the nature of the flow governing equations a closed form semi-analytical method have been derived for velocity, temperature and concentration profiles. Results of the numerical computations are presented graphically and discussed quantitatively for various flow parameters embedded in the problem. It is observed that, Diffusion-Thermo, Navier slip and Newtonian heating play a significant role in the flow formation.

Keywords: Free convection, diffusion-thermo, porous medium, slip condition, convectively heating
