This study investigated the effects of magnetic field, thermal radiation and wall slip on a Newtonian, incompressible, viscous fluid flowing through a saturated porous medium. Boundary conditions for slip at the wall hold in the fluid. The governing equations are formulated, simplified and non-dimensionalised. The dimensionless equations were solved with the help of Crank Nicolson’s finite difference method. This method converges faster and it is unconditionally stable. Numerical results are presented with the aid of graph to account for the fluid parameters affecting the flow on velocity and temperature profiles.
This study contributes in the existing literature of Newtonian fluids. Series of practical problems involves either Newtonian or non-Newtonian fluids. This study uses new estimation methodology of analyzing the heat transfer properties of Newtonian fluids. This study originates new formula for solving non-linear partial differential equations using Crank Nicolson finite difference method. This study is one of very few studies which have investigated the heat transfer in a Darcy-Forchheimer porous medium. The paper's primary contribution is finding the effects of various thermo physical parameters affecting the flow. This study documents a less well-known Darcy-Forchheimer porous medium by finding the effects of magnetic field, thermal radiation and wall slip on a Newtonian fluid in the presence of viscous dissipation.
