MHD Mixed Convection Slip Flow of Radiating Casson Fluid with Entropy Generation in a Channel Filled with Porous Media



In this paper, both first and second laws of thermodynamics are employed to investigate the combined effects of magnetic field, buoyancy force, velocity slip, suction/injection, porous medium permeability, thermal radiation absorption, viscous and Joule heating on mixed convective flow of an electrical conducting Casson fluid in a vertical channel. The dimensionless governing equations are obtained and solved numerically using a shooting technique coupled with a fourth order Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg integration scheme. The influence of various thermophysical parameters on velocity and temperature profiles, skin friction, Nusselt number, entropy generation rate and Bejan number are presented graphically and discussed quantitatively. It is found that with appropriate combination of thermophysical parameter values the entropy generation rate in the presence of an applied magnetic field can successfully.
