Abstract :
In this paper, a comprehensive numerical study is presented for studying the MHD flow and heat transfer characteristics of Non-Newtonian micropolar fluid through a porous medium between two stretchable porous disks. The system of governing equations is converted into coupled nonlinear ordinary ones through a similarity transformation, which is then solved using Quasi-linearization method. The effects of the magnetic field, the vortex viscosity, the microinertia density, the spin gradient viscosity, the stretching of the disks, the viscous dissipation, the ratio of momentum diffusivity to thermal viscosity, the radiation and the porosity of the medium on the flow, microrotation and temperature fields are discussed through tables and graphs.
