Heat and mass transfer by Natural convection in a doubly stratified porous medium saturated with Power-law fluid

Volume: 1 Issue: 1
Year of Publication: 2019


This paper studies the effects of natural convection heat and mass transfer through a vertical plate embedded in a power-law fluid saturated Darcy\"s porous medium in addition to double stratification By using similarity transformations, the governing partial differential equations are transformed into ordinary differential equations and consequently solved using shooting method. Taking into account the physical parameters involved in a problem, a parametric study is carried out and the representative set of numerical results are graphically illustrated.
