Abstract: In this article, the unsteady free convective flow through a rotating disk was discussed under the influence of the chemical reaction, Dufour effect and Soret effect. Similarity transformation is used to change the unsteady non-linear boundary equations to a set of ordinary differential equations. Then we used the MATLAB’s bvp4c solver to solve these differential equations. Temperature as well as concentration profiles are drawn for different flow parameters of flow such as Soret Effect, Dufour Effect and also parameter of Chemical Reaction. We have also discussed the Nusselt number graph and values are given in a tabular form for different kinds of flow parameters.
Keywords: Chemical Reaction, Dufour Effect, Rotating Disk. Soret Effect, Unsteady Flow.
Scope of the Article: Process and workflow management
