Abstract

Inherent irreversibility in the flow of a reactive third grade fluid though a channel with convective heating is examined. It is well known that heat dissipated from the exothermic chemical reaction passes through fluid in an irreversible manner and as a result entropy is generated continuously within the channel. Analytical solutions of the resulting dimensionless non-linear boundary-value-problems arising from the governing equations were obtained by using a perturbation method. These solutions are utilized to obtain the entropy generation rate and Bejan number for the system. The influence of various important parameters on the entropy generation rate and Bejan number are shown graphically and discussed accordingly.
