a b s t r a c t The problem of steady laminar magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) mixed convection heat transfer about a vertical plate is studied numerically, taking into account the effects of Ohmic heating and viscous dissipation. A uniform magnetic ﬁeld is applied perpendicular to the plate. The resulting governing equations are transformed into the non-similar boundary layer equations and solved using the Keller box method. Both the aiding-buoyancy mode and the opposing-buoyancy mode of the mixed convection are examined. The velocity and temperature proﬁles as well as the local skin friction and local heat transfer parameters are determined for different values of the governing parameters, mainly the magnetic parameter, the Richardson number, the Eckert number and the suction/injection parameter, fw. For some speciﬁc values of the governing parameters, the results agree very well with those available in the literature. Generally, it is determined that the local skin friction coefﬁcient and the local heat transfer coefﬁcient increase owing to suction of ﬂuid, increasing the Richardson number, Ri (i.e. the mixed convection parameter) or decreasing the Eckert number. This trend reverses for blowing of ﬂuid and decreasing the Richardson number or decreasing the Eckert number. It is disclosed that the value of Ri determines the effect of the magnetic parameter on the momentum and heat transfer. Ó 2009 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

1. Introduction The study of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) ﬂow has received a great deal of research interest due to its importance in many engineering applications, such as plasma studies, petroleum industries, MHD power generators, cooling of nuclear reactors, the boundary layer control in aerodynamics, and crystal growth. Convection about a heated/cooled vertical plate is one of fundamental problems in heat and mass transfer studies. If the free convection existing for this case is accompanied by an external ﬂow, the combined mode of free and forced convection exits, which is commonly called as mixed convection. On the effect of MHD ﬂow, although there are many studies regarding the free convection regime [1,2], there are only a few regarding the mixed convection regime. Yıh  numerically analyzed the effect of heat source/sink on steady two-dimensional laminar MHD mixed convection in stagnation ﬂows of incompressible, electrically conducting ﬂuids about a vertical permeable ﬂat plate with linear wall temperature proportional to the distance in a porous medium. Chamkha et al.  studied the effects of localized heating (cooling), suction (injection), buoyancy forces and magnetic ﬁeld for the mixed convection ﬂow on a heated vertical plate. Abo-Eldahab and Azzam [5,6] studied the MHD mixed free-forced heat and mass convective steady incompressible laminar boundary layer ﬂow, past an isothermal

In a recent study, Abdelkhalek  studied MHD mixed convection in stagnation point ﬂow impinging on a heated vertical semi-inﬁnite permeable surface. Aydin and Kaya  studied mixed convection of viscous dissipating ﬂuid about a vertical plate. They observed four different ﬂow situations according to the direction of the free stream ﬂow and thermal boundary condition applied at the wall. The objective of this study is focused at extending that study including the suction/injection effect at the wall and the presence of a magnetic ﬁeld. 2. Analysis Consider the steady, laminar, incompressible, two-dimensional, mixed convection boundary layer ﬂow about a vertical ﬂat plate shown in Fig. 1. The ﬂuid is assumed to be electrically conducting. The coordinate system is chosen such that x measures the distance along the plate and y measures the distance normal to it. A uniform magnetic ﬁeld is assumed to apply in the y-direction causing a ﬂow resistive force in the x-direction. It is assumed that the induced magnetic ﬁeld, the external

or imposed electric ﬁeld and the electric ﬁeld due to the polarization of charges (i.e. Hall effect) are negligible. The plate is considered to be electrically non-conducting.

Numerical solution The system of transformed equations together with the boundary conditions, Eqs. (8)–(10), have been solved numerically using the Keller box scheme, an efﬁcient and accurate ﬁnite-difference scheme, similar to that described in Cebeci and Bradshaw . For the sake of brevity, details of the numerical method are not described, referring the reader to Cebeci and Bradshaw . This is a very popular implicit scheme, which demonstrates the ability to solve systems of differential equations of

any order as well as featuring second-order accuracy (which can be realized with arbitrary non-uniform spacing), allowing very rapid x or n variations . A set of non-linear ﬁnite-difference algebraic equations derived are then solved by using the Newton quazi-linearization method. The same methodology as that followed by Takhar and Beg  is followed. Therefore, for the ﬁnite-difference forms of the equations, we refer the reader to Ref.  for the brevity of the article. In the calculations, a uniform grid of the step size 0.01 in the g-direction and a non-uniform grid in the n-direction with a starting step size 0.001 and an increase of 0.05 times the previous step size were found to be satisfactory in obtaining sufﬁcient accuracy within a tolerance better than 106 in nearly all cases. The value of g1 = 16 is shown to satisfy the velocity to reach the relevant stream velocity. In order to verify the accuracy of the numerical results, the validity of the numerical code developed has been checked for a limiting case. For Pr = 1.0, Ri = 0.0, and Ec = 0.0, we compare our h0 (0, 0) results with those given by Lin and Lin , Yih , Chamkha et al. , Nield and Kuznetsov  and Kuznetsov and Nield  (Table 1). For different Pr and Ri, we compare our h0 (0, 0) results with those given by Saeid  (Table 2). For Pr = 1.0 and different Ec, our h0 (n, 0) results are compared with those given by Watanabe and Pop , Yih  and Chamkha et al.  (Table 3). As it is seen from Tables 1–3 excellent agreements have been observed.

4. Results and discussion In the mixed convection case, depending on the direction of external ﬂow, two different mixed convection regimes occur: aiding and opposing . In this study, the aiding and opposing regimes of mixed convection are examined including the viscous dissipation and magnetic ﬁeld effects. The following ranges of the main parameters are considered: Ri = 0.15, 0.1, 0.075, 0.05, 0.025, 0.0, 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1.0, 2.0 and 5.0; Pr = 1.0; fw = 0.1, 0.0, 0.1; Ec = 0.0 and 0.25 and magnetic interaction parameter n, the range 0.0 6 n 6 1.0. The combined effects of Ri, Ec, fw and n on the momentum and heat transfer are analyzed. The Richardson number, Ri represents a measure of the effect of the buoyancy in comparison with that of the inertia of the external forced or free stream ﬂow on the heat and ﬂuid ﬂow. Outside the mixed convection region, either the pure forced convection or the free convection analysis can be used to describe accurately the ﬂow or the temperature ﬁeld. Forced convection is the dominant mode of transport when Ri ? 0, whereas free convection is the dominant mode when Ri ? 1. Buoyancy forces can enhance the surface heat transfer rate when they assist the forced convection, and vice versa . The Eckert number, Ec represents the relative importance of viscous dissipation to thermal diffusion. Viscous dissipation plays a role like an energy source and therefore it affects the temperature proﬁle. In the ﬁrst case, an upward forced external ﬂow is considered. For the heated wall case (Tw > T1), the upward free ﬂow caused by the buoyancy is in the same direction with the external forced ﬂow. This case is called the aiding mixed ﬂow. For

the case without the viscous dissipation effect (Ec = 0) and impermeable wall, Fig. 2 shows velocity and temperature proﬁles for different values of the Richardson number, Ri and magnetic interaction parameter, n. An increase at Ri result in increasing velocities due to addition of buoyancy-induced ﬂow onto the external forced ﬂow. In order to understand the effect of the magnetic interaction parameter, we should examine Eqs. (2 and 3) closely. The rB2 sign of the last term in the right hand side of Eq. (2), q0 ðu  u1 Þ, is directly related with the sign of (u  u1). For the forced convection regime, when Ri ? 0, this term will always be negative since u1 > u. Therefore, it will generate a force in the main ﬂow direction, which will aid the main ﬂow. However, for the free convection regime, when Ri ? 1, buoyancy-driven ﬂow will dominate the external ﬂow and therefore this term will always be positive since u1 < u, which will slow down the rB20 u , represents the imposed pressure force in the inviscid main ﬂow. In fact, this term has two components: The ﬁrst one, 1 q rB2 region of the conducting ﬂuid, while the second one, q0 u, represents the Lorentz force imposed by a transverse magnetic ﬁeld to an electrically conducting, which slows down the ﬂuid motion in the boundary layer region. When the imposed pressure force overcomes the Lorentz force, i.e. u1 > u, the effect of the magnetic interaction parameter is to increase velocity. Similarly, when the Lorentz force dominates over the imposed pressure force, i.e. u1 < u, the effect of the magnetic interaction parameter will decrease velocity. In the mixed convection regime, when Ri increases the Lorentz force and therefore opposes the ﬂow and therefore velocity decreases. However, decreasing Ri strengthens the imposed pressure force, which aids the ﬂow by increasing the velocity (Fig. 2a). The last term in the right hand side of Eq. (3), rB20 2 2 qcp ðu  u1 uÞ, will behave like a 2heat sink or a heat source depending on the sign of (u  u1u). This term consists of rB work, which is supposed two components. The ﬁrst one, qcp0 u2 , represents the Ohmic heating due to the electromagnetic rB2 to behave like a heat source by increasing the ﬂuid temperature, while the second one qcp0 u1 u is the stress work which

decreases the ﬂuid temperature. When the latter component suppresses the former one, this term will serve as a heat sink decreasing the ﬂuid temperature (Fig. 2b). Fig. 3 illustrates the effects of Ec and fw at Ri = 1 and n = 0.1. As expected, when compared to an impermeable plate, the suction (fw > 0) decreases velocity and temperature while injection (fw > 0) increases them. Therefore, suction of ﬂuid at wall reduces both the hydrodynamic and thermal boundary layers, which result in increasing ﬂuid velocity and decreasing ﬂuid temperature. Opposite is true for the case of injecting ﬂuid at wall. The viscous dissipation, as a heat generation inside the ﬂuid, increases the bulk ﬂuid temperature. As seen from Fig. 3, an increase in Ec increases ﬂuid temperature. Fig. 4 shows the effect of the magnetic interaction parameter, n on the momentum and heat transfer for various values of Ec and fw. As it is stated above, the effect of this parameter will vary according to the value of Ri. In the forced regime (Ri ? 0), the magnetic ﬁeld parameter, increasing n will increase the local skin friction parameter, f 00 ðn; 0Þ and the heat transfer parameter, h0 (n, 0) as a result of increased velocity and temperature gradients at wall. In the free convection regime (Ri ? 1), an increase in n will increase f 00 ðn; 0Þ and will decrease h0 (n, 0). In the mixed convection regime, the level of Ri will determine the effect of n. As expected, increasing Ec increases local skin friction and decreasing local heat transfer parameters. As seen, effect of Ec becomes more considerable with increasing Ri. Fig. 4 also aims to explore the effects of the suction/injection parameter on the temperature proﬁle. As expected, when compared to an impermeable wall case (fw = 0, Fig. 4b) increasing fw increases the local skin friction and the local heat transfer parameter since injecting ﬂuid into the boundary layer (fw = 0.1, Fig. 4a) broadens the velocity distribution and increases the hydrodynamic boundary layer thicknesses, while sucking of ﬂuid from the boundary layer through wall (fw = 0.1, Fig. 4c) will results in an opposing effect.

Fig. 7. Effects of Ri (opposing-buoyancy), Ec and n on the local skin friction parameter and local heat transfer parameter for fw = 0.1 (a) fw = 0.0 (b) and fw = 0.1 (c).

In the second case, a downward forced external ﬂow is assumed. The upward ﬂow caused by the buoyancy for the heated wall case (Tw > T1) has a retarding effect on the external forced ﬂow, which is called as opposing mixed ﬂow. For the case without the viscous dissipation effect (Ec = 0) and the impermeable wall (fw = 0.1), the velocity and temperature proﬁles for different values of the Richardson number, Ri are shown in Fig. 5. An increase at Ri results in decreasing velocities because of opposing effect of the upward buoyancy-induced ﬂow on the downward external forced ﬂow. For this opposing mixed convection regime, Fig. 6 illustrates the effects of Ec and fw at Ri = 1 and n = 0.1. As expected, the suction (fw > 0) decreases velocity and temperature while injection (fw > 0) increases them. The viscous dissipation increases the bulk ﬂuid temperature. Therefore, in addition to opposing effect of the buoyancy, viscous dissipation will have an opposing effect on the heat transfer, too. For the opposing mixed convection case, Fig. 7 shows the effect of the magnetic interaction parameter, n on the momentum and heat transfer for various values of Ec and fw. For this case, increasing n increases the local skin friction, f 00 ðn; 0Þ and the local heat transfer parameter, h0 (n, 0). Similar to the case of the aiding mixed convection, when compared to the impermeable wall case, the heat transfer parameter increases at the suction case, while it is decreased at the injection case. When injection is applied at the wall, hydrodynamic and thermal boundary layers will thicken, thereby resulting in a decrease in the heat transfer parameter. Results of the values of the local skin friction parameter, f 00 ðn; 0Þ and the local heat transfer parameter h0 (n, 0) for various values of the suction/injection parameter, fw, the mixed convection parameter, Ri, the viscous dissipation parameter, Ec and the magnetic parameter, n are given in Table 4. 5. Conclusions Steady MHD mixed convection about a heated vertical plate has been analyzed including the effects of suction/injection at the wall and viscous dissipation. A transformed set of non-similar equations have been solved using the Keller box scheme, an efﬁcient and accurate ﬁnite-difference scheme. Both the aiding- and opposing-buoyancy modes of the mixed convection have been studied. The conclusions drawn from the study can be summarized as follows: (i) As expected, the mixed convection parameter (i.e. the Richardson number, Ri) increases the momentum and heat transfer for the aiding-buoyancy mode, while the opposite is true for the opposing-buoyancy mode. (ii) Suction at the wall increases the local skin friction parameter and the local heat transfer parameter due to decreased thermal boundary layer thickness, while injection has an opposite effect. (iii) The viscous dissipation increases the ﬂuid temperature and therefore decreases the temperature gradient at the wall, which results in decreased heat transfer values. (iv) The presence of the magnetic ﬁeld inﬂuences ﬂow and temperature ﬁelds. The effect of the magnetic interaction parameter is found to vary according to the value of the Richardson number, Ri.
