Abstract

A mathematical model is presented for the nonlinear steady, forced convection, hydromagnetic flow of electro-conductive magnetic nano-polymer with magnetic induction effects included. The transformed two-parameter, non-dimensional governing partial differential equations for mass, momentum, magnetic induction and heat conservation are solved with the local non-similarity method (LNM) subject to appropriate boundary conditions. Keller’s implicit finite difference “box” method (KBM) is used to validate solutions. Computations for four different nanoparticles and three different base fluids are included. Silver nanoparticles in combination with various base fluids enhance temperatures and induced magnetic field and accelerate the flow. An elevation in magnetic body force number decelerates the flow whereas an increase in magnetic Prandtl number elevates the magnetic induction. Furthermore, increasing nanoparticle solid volume fraction is found to substantially boost temperatures. Applications of the study arise in advanced magnetic solar nano-materials (fluids) processing technologies.
