Abstract

Free convective flow and heat transfer of nanofluid close to the inclined plate immersed in the porous medium under the effects of uniform magnetic field and solar radiation has been studied. Boundary-layer approach, Boussinesq approximation and two-phase nanofluid model have been used for a formulation of the governing equations taking into account convective-radiative heat exchange with an environment. The local similarity method has been adopted for the analysis of the considered phenomenon. The obtained equations have been solved numerically using MATLAB software. The effects of control characteristics on profiles of velocity, temperature and nanoparticles volume fraction as well as Nusselt number have been studied in detail.
