Paper Title:
Mixed Convective Heat Transfer Flow of Nanofluid past a Permeable Vertical Flat Plate with Magnetic Effects: A Finite Element Study
  Abstract

Steady, two dimensional mixed convection laminar boundary layer flow of incompressible nanofluid along a permeable vertical semi-infinite flat plate with magnetic field effects has been investigated numerically. The resulting govering equations (obtained from the boussinesq) with associated boundary conditions are solved, using a robust, extensively validated, Galerkin Finite Element Method for different types of spherical shaped metal oxide nanoparticles with two different ratios of the nanolayer thickness to the original particle radius (0.02 or 0.1). The effects of the parameters governing the problems are discussed and shown graphically. The present study is of immediate interest in next-generation solar film collectors, heat exchangers technology, material processing exploiting vertical surfaces and all those processes which are highly affected with heat transfer.
