Abstract

Here MHD three-dimensional flow of viscous nanoliquid by a rotating disk with heat generation/absorption and slip effects is addressed. Thermophoresis and random motion features are also incorporated. Velocity, temperature and concentration slip conditions are imposed at boundary. Applied magnetic field is utilized. Low magnetic Reynolds number and boundary layer approximations have been employed in the problem formulation. Suitable transformations lead to strong nonlinear ordinary differential system. The obtained nonlinear system is solved numerically through NDSolve technique. Graphs have been sketched in order to analyze that how the velocity, temperature and concentration fields are affected by various pertinent variables. Moreover the numerical values for rates of heat and mass transfer have been tabulated and discussed.
