Viscoelastic Effects to MHD Oscillatory Viscoelastic Flow in a Channel Filled with Porous Medium and Chemical Reaction
The effect of viscoelastic parameter on an unsteady hydromagnetic
flow of a conducting optically thin viscoelastic fluid through a channel filled
with saturated porous medium and non-uniform walls temperature are investigated
in the presence of first-order chemical reaction and radiative heat transfer.
It is assumed that the fluid has small electrical conductivity and the
electromagnetic force produced is very small. Closed-form analytical solutions
are constructed for the problem. The effects of the radiation and the magnetic
field parameters on velocity profile and shear stress for different values of
the viscoelastic parameter with the combination of the other flow parameters
are illustrated graphically and physical aspects of the problem are discussed.
Keywords: Oscillatory flow, porous medium, heat transfer, magnetic field, viscoelastic, first-order chemical reaction.
