On the Effectiveness of Variation in the Physical Variables on the Generalized Couette Flow with Heat Transfer in a Porous Medium

Hazem Ali Attia    

Abstract: The influence of variation in physical variables on the steady generalized Couette flow with heat transfer in a porous medium is studied. The fluid is acted upon by a constant pressure gradient. The viscosity and the thermal conductivity are assumed to be temperature dependent. The two plates are kept at two constant but different temperatures and the viscous dissipation is considered in the energy equation. A numerical solution for the governing non-linear coupled equations of motion and the energy equation is obtained. The effect of porosity, the temperature dependent viscosity, thermal conductivity and electric conductivity on both the velocity and temperature distributions is examined.
