Abstract

The work analysed the boundary layer mixed convection flow of Casson fluid over a stretching sheet with convective surface boundary conditions (Newtonian heating) and Hall Effect in the presence of chemical reaction and internal heat generation. Similarity solutions were obtained using scaling transformations. Using the similarity variables, the governing non-linear partial differential are transformed into a set of coupled non-linear ordinary differential equations, which are solved numerically by the shooting iteration technique together with sixth-order Runge-Kuta scheme. To observe physical insight and interesting aspects of the problem in the presence of Hall Effect, internal heat generation and chemical reaction, the non-dimensional velocity, transverse velocity, temperature and concentration field are numerically studied and displayed graphically for pertinent controlling fluid flow parameters. The result shows the effect of the combined parameters of Hall Effect, chemical reaction and internal heat generation has greater influence on the Casson fluid flow model. The results of Ashraf et al. [1] serve as a special type of ours and our results agrees with their published research article.
