ABSTRACT

Continuum equations governing steady, laminar, free convection flow of a particulate suspension over an infinite, permeable, inclined, and isothermal flat plate with magnetic field and fluid heat absorbing effects are developed. The equations account for particulate viscous effects which are absent from most two-phase fluid-particle models. Analytical solutions are developed for inviscid and viscous particle phase situations. Graphical results for the velocity and temperature profiles for both phases as well as their skin-friction coefficients and the Nusselt number are presented and discussed.
