Impact of Chemical Reaction on Ag-Water Nanofluid Flow and Heat Transfer Due to an Inclined Stretching Cylinder

Shikha K. Kandwal, Ashish Mishra, Manoj Kumar


The object of present work is to capture the impact of chemical reaction and mass diffusion on Ag-water nanofluid along an inclined stretching cylinder. The effects of viscous dissipation and heat generation/absorption are incorporated on principal equations of the problem. The suitable transformations are used to convert governing equations into non-dimensional ODEs. Then equations with boundary conditions are solved with Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg method of 4-5th order with shooting technique. The relevant parameters impact on velocity, temperature and concentration are shown through graphs. The result shows that increasing value of chemical reaction parameter is responsible for increasing rate of mass transfer.
