Abstract

Non-Darcy mixed convection in porous media plays an important role in several applications such as in geothermal operations, petroleum industries and thermal insulation. The problem of Non-Darcy mixed convection from horizontal plate embedded in a nanofluid saturated porous media in the presence of heat source/sink is numerically studied using different types of nanofluid as Copper (Cu), Alumunium (Alz03) and Titanium (TiOz). The model used for the nanofluid incorporates the effect of the volume fraction parameter and thermal conductivity in the presence of heat source/sink along the porous horizontal plate in case of non-Darcy. The mathematical model formulation is obtained by reducing non-linear partial differential equation governing equations to first order ordinary differential equations. The obtained governing equations have been solved numerically by using fourth-fifth Runge-Kutta Eiehlberg method with shooting technique. Dimensionless velocity and temperature profiles for different values of parameters are presented in graph and tabular. Salient features of the results are analyzed and discussed.
