Abstract

A theoretical study of thermal radiation effects on unsteady MHD natural convection flow of an electrically conducting fluid past a vertical plate with variable temperature is considered. It is supposed that the temperature of the plate decays exponentially with time. Exact solutions to the nondimensionalised coupled linear partial differential equations representing the flow problem are obtained using Laplace transform technique. Effects of different physical parameters involved in the temperature and velocity profiles are investigated, shown graphically and discussed. Skin friction and Nusselt number are also derived and their variations with respect to the parameters are investigated.
