Abstract

The present article addresses the double-diffusive convection flow of the Casson fluid with thermal radiation. With suitable independent transformations, the governing partial differential equations are first transformed into ordinary differential equations. The converted equations are solved numerically by using Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg forth-fifth technique (RKF45 Method) via shooting technique. The eects of the emerging parameters, the skin friction coecient, the Nusselt number, and the Sherwood number are analyzed on the dimensionless velocities, temperature, and concentration fields. Outcome shows that buoyancy forces due to temperature difference suppress the skin friction whereas it will enhance the local Nusselt and Sherwood numbers.
