Abstract

The present paper investigates the combined effects of melting phenomenon and viscous dissipation over a steady incompressible mixed convection boundary layer fluid flow along a vertical plate. Radiation and double dispersion are also taken into consideration. Further effect of homogeneous chemical reaction of order ’n’ is studied over the non-Darcy porous plate. Continuum equations that characterize fluid flow are transformed to a set of non linear ordinary differential equations through a suitable similarity transformation. These equations are then solved by MATLAB ’bvp4c’ iterative programming method. As a matter of accuracy and validation, available results are compared with the present study as a special case. Flow characteristics of the problem are illustrated graphically.
