Abstract

This present investigation carried out the effects of Hall current, Joule heating and the thermal diffusion on mixed convection flow of electrically conducting couple stress fluid in a vertical channel saturated with porous medium. The final system of ordinary differential equations are obtained from the governing non-linear partial differential equations by using the similarity transformations. Homotopy Analysis Method has been used to solve the non-linear system. The average residue errors of the HAM solutions are presented through graphs. The influence of the emerging parameters (Hall, Soret, magnetic and the couple stress parameters) on velocity, temperature and concentration profiles are presented through plots. Finally heat and mass transfer rates at both the plates are presented in tabular form.
