ABSTRACT

An analytical study of this paper deals with soret and dufour effect of unsteady MHD flow of Kuvshinski fluid with heat and mass transfer. A uniform magnetic field is applied perpendicular to the flow in the porous medium. The expressions for velocity, temperature and concentration are solved. The coefficient of skin friction, heat and mass transfer in terms of nusselt number and Sherwood number are also derived. Results are discussed and analysed for various parameters through graphs.

Keywords :Kuvshinski fluid, MHD, thermal radiation, chemical reaction.
