Abstract

Thermo-diffusion (Soret effect) and diffusion-thermo (Dufour effect) effects on combined heat and mass transfer of a steady hydromagnetic convective and slip flow due to a rotating disk in the presence of viscous dissipation and Ohmic heating is investigated. The partial differential equations governing the problem under consideration have been transformed by a similarity transformation into a system of ordinary differential equations which are solved numerically by applying the shooting method. For fluids of medium molecular weight (H2, air), profiles of the dimensionless velocity, temperature and concentration distributions are shown graphically for various values of slip parameter ?, magnetic field parameter M, Eckert Ec, Schmidt Sc, Dufour Du and Soret Sr numbers. Finally, numerical values of physical quantities, such as the local skin friction coefficient, the local Nusselt number and the local Sherwood number are presented in tabular form. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd.
