Abstract

In the present paper the numerical study of effects of Soret, Dufour and viscous dissipation parameters on steady MHD Casson fluid flow through non-Darcy porous medium is explored. By suitable similarity transformations, the governing boundary layer equations are transformed to ordinary differential equations. The method, the numerical computation with bvp4c, a MATLAB program, is applied to solve these equations. The effects of magnetic parameter, Soret parameter, Dufour parameter, Prandtl number, Schmidth number, Eckert number, and Casson parameter on velocity, heat transfer, and concentration profiles, Skin- friction, local Nusselt number and local Sherwood number are computed and discussed numerically and presented through tables and graphs.
