Abstract

This paper presents a study of the Magnetohydrodynamic flow of incompressible micropolar fluid past an infinite vertical porous plate with combined heat and mass transfer. The plate oscillate harmonically in its own plane and the temperature raised linearly with respect to time. Numerical calculations are carried out for different values of dimensionless parameters and an analysis of the results shown graphically and in table form. It is found that velocity and microrotation influenced appreciatively with parameters like radiation, magnetic, chemical reaction and coupling numbers. It is also noted that microrotation highly influenced by the magnetic parameters. The effects of some parameters on the skin friction, Nusselt and Sherwood numbers studied.
