Abstract

Natural convection flow past a vertical porous plate in a porous medium is studied numerically, by taking into account the Dufour and Soret effects. The similarity equations of the problem considered are obtained by using usual similarity technique. This system of ordinary differential equations, which are solved numerically by using the Nachtsheim -Swigerst hooting iteration technique together with a sixth order Runge-Kutta integrations scheme. The results show that Soret and Dufour effects do not appreciably influence the velocity, temperature and concentration fields, but rather only tend to increase the mass and energy flux due to the added contributions.
