Abstract

This paper reports multiple slip effects on MHD unsteady flow heat and mass transfer over a stretching sheet with Soret effect; suction/injection and thermal radiation are numerically analyzed. We consider a time-dependent applied magnetic field and stretching sheet which moves with nonuniform velocity. Suitable similarity variables are used to transform governing partial differential equations into a system of coupled nonlinear ordinary differential equations. The transformed equations are then solved numerically by applying an implicit finite difference method with quasi-linearization technique. The influences of the various parameters on the velocity temperature and concentration profiles as well as on the skin friction coefficient and Sherwood and Nusselt numbers are discussed by the aid of graphs and tables.
