Abstract

An unsteady mixed convective flow of micro-polar fluid in a porous medium has been considered in presence of transverse magnetic field, Dufour effects and radiation. Effects of radiation absorption and heat source/sink are taken into account. The Buoyancy force leads to free convection and oscillatory free stream velocity is responsible for forced convection. Partial differential equations governed by conservation principles of mass, momentum and energy are solved analytically using perturbation scheme. Effects of various parameters on the governing fluid motion are shown graphically and numerically in tabular form.

Keywords- Micro-polar fluid, Dufour effect, Radiation, Shear stress, Couple shear stress.
