Mass transfer and free convection flow through a porous medium



Mass transfer and free convection flow through a porous medium



International Journal of Energy Research 11(3): 423-428



A theoretical analysis of the steady free convective and mass transfer flow is presented, when a viscous and incompressible fluid flows through a porous medium occupying a semi-infinite region of the space bounded by an infinite vertical porous plate. The fluid is subjected to a normal suction velocity, and the heat flux at the plate is constant. The free-stream velocity is assumed constant.
