|Keywords:||Unsteady mixed convection;Vertical plate;Radiative heat flux;Magnetic field||Issue Date:||2009||Publisher:||Wiley||Source:||Ogulu, A. & Makinde, O.D. (2009). Unsteady hydromagnetic free convection flow of a dissipative and radiating fluid past a vertical plate with constant heat flux. Chemical Engineering Communications, 196(4):454-462||Abstract:||The effect of thermal radiation absorption on an unsteady free convective flow past a vertical plate is studied in the presence of a magnetic field and constant wall heat flux. Boundary layer equations are derived, and the resulting approximate nonlinear ordinary differential equations are solved analytically using asymptotic technique. A parametric study of all parameters involved is conducted, and a representative set of numerical results for the velocity and temperature profiles as well as the skin-friction parameter are illustrated graphically to show typical trends of the solutions.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/11189/3487
