Abstract

Free convection and related heat and mass transfer along a vertical plate embedded in a power-law fluid saturated Darcy porous medium with thermal and solutal stratification effects is studied. The governing partial differential equations are transformed into ordinary differential equations using similarity transformations and then solved numerically by means of a shooting method. The variations of non-dimensional velocity, temperature and concentration are presented graphically for various values of the power-law index, and of the thermal and solutal stratification parameters. In addition, the heat and mass transfer rates are tabulated for different values of the governing nondimensional numbers.
