Effect of radiation and magnetohydrodynamic free convection boundary layer flow on a solid sphere with Newtonian heating in a micropolar fluid
Abstract
In this paper, the effect of radiation on magnetohydrodynamic free convection boundary layer flow on a solid sphere with Newtonian heating in a micropolar fluid, in which the heat transfer from the surface is proportional to the local surface temperature, is considered. The transformed boundary layer equations in the form of nonlinear partial differential equations are solved numerically using an implicit finite difference scheme known as the Kellerbox method. Numerical solutions are obtained for the local wall temperature and the local skin friction coefficient, as well as the velocity, angular velocity and temperature profiles. The features of the flow and heat transfer characteristics for various values of the Prandtl number Pr, micropolar parameter K, magnetic parameter M, radiation parameter N{sub R}, the conjugate parameter γ and the coordinate running along the surface of the sphere, x are analyzed and discussed.

The subject of thermal convection in porous media has attracted considerable attention in the last three decades and is now considered to be an important field of study in the general areas of fluid mechanics and heat transfer in view of its importance in various engineering applications, such as heat transfer associated with storage of nuclear waste, exothermic reaction in packedbed reactors, heat removal from nuclear fuel debris, heat recovery from geothermal systems and particularly in the field of large storage systems of agricultural products, to name a few applications. The authors consider how the boundarylayer flow induced by amore »

SIMILAR SOLUTIONS OF THE FREE CONVECTION BOUNDARY LAYER EQUATIONS FOR AN ELECTRICALLY CONDUCTING FLUID
A solution of the problem of the free convection boundary layer adjacent to a vertical plate with a uniforns surface temperature is presented. The surrounding medium is an electrically conducting fluid and an applied magnetic field is normal to the direction of fluid motion. It is shown that a class of similar solutions exists for an electrically conducting fluid in the case of constant wall temperature. (N.W.R.) 
A SIMILAR SOLUTION OF THE TURBULENT, FREECONVECTION, BOUNDARY LAYER PROBLEM FOR AN ELECTRICALLY CONDUCTING FLUID IN THE PRESENCE OF A MAGNETIC FIELD
Equations are developed for the care of turbulent flow, and the results are compared with results previously obtained for the care of laminar flow. (D.E.B.) 
Numerical study of mixed convection around a sphere rotating about its vertical axis in a Newtonian fluid at rest and subject to a heat flux
The authors study numerically the steady state laminar mixed convection around a sphere heated by a nonuniform flux in a Newtonian fluid. The sphere rotates around its vertical axis. The governing transfer equations in this threedimensional problem are solved by using the method of CebeciKeller. Three types of convection are considered: pure rotation, pure natural convection, and mixed convection. The profiles of the coefficients of heat transfer and local friction, as well as the profiles of temperature, will be determined for various distributions of a heat flux. In the case of a twodimensional problem, the results agree with those inmore »
