Unsteady Flow Past an Accelerated Vertical Plate with Variable Temperature in Presence of Thermal Stratification and Chemical Reaction
This work aims to investigate the effect of thermal stratification on fluid flow past an accelerated vertical plate in the presence of first order chemical reaction. The dimensionless unsteady coupled linear governing equations are solved by Laplace transform technique for the case when the Prandtl number is unity. The important conclusions made in this study the effect of thermal stratification is compared with the scenario in which there was no stratification. The results of numerical computations for different sets of physical parameters, such as velocity, temperature, concentration, skinfriction, Nusselt number and Sherwood number are displayed graphically. It is shown that the steady state is attained more quickly when the flow is stratified.
