Abstract

Impacts of gold nanoparticles on MHD Poiseuille flow of nanofluid in a porous medium are studied. Mixed convection is induced due to external pressure gradient and buoyancy force. Additional effects of thermal radiation, chemical reaction and thermal diffusion are also considered. Gold nanoparticles of cylindrical shape are considered in kerosene oil taken as conventional base fluid. However, for comparison, four other types of nanoparticles (silver, copper, alumina and magnetite) are also considered. The problem is modeled in terms of partial differential equations with suitable boundary conditions and then computed by perturbation technique. Exact expressions for velocity and temperature are obtained. Graphical results are mapped in order to tackle the physics of the embedded parameters. This study mainly focuses on gold nanoparticles; however, for the sake of comparison, four other types of nanoparticles namely silver, copper, alumina and magnetite are analyzed for the heat transfer rate. The obtained results show that metals have higher rate of heat transfer than metal oxides. Gold nanoparticles have the highest rate of heat transfer followed by alumina and magnetite. Porosity and magnetic field have opposite effects on velocity.
