Abstract

Magnetic  field  effects  on  Steady  free  Convective  flow  through  an  irregular  vertical  channel  in  the  presence  of viscous  dissipation  is  considered. The  dimensional  governing  equations  of  the  problem  involving  continuity, momentum  and  energy  equations  were  non-dimensionalized.  The  dimensionless  non-linear  coupled  differential equations  were  solved  using  Adomian  Decomposition  Method  (ADM)  with  mathematica  11.0  software.  On velocity and temperature, the effects of different fluid parameters were observed and presented both graphically and in tabular forms. It  was observed that increase in viscous dissipation parameter enhanced both velocity and temperature profiles while a rise in magnetic parameter retarded both velocity and  temperature distributions of the fluid.
