Scope of Book
This handbook is targeted at researchers, practicing engineers, as well as seasoned beginners in this field. A leading expert in the related subject area presents each topic. An attempt has been made to present the topics in a cohesive, concise yet complementary way with a common format. Nomenclature common to various sections was used as much as possible.
Main feature of this book is that three different methodologies namely Classical Perturbation Technique, Laplace Transform Technique and Numerical Technique for Crank-Nicolson Type have been applied for various flow models. The basic principles and fundamental concepts of fluid mechanics along with hydrodynamics, magnetohydrodynamics and porous media with heat and mass transport are incorporated.
Details about Book
This book includes mathematical investigations of different flow models related to unsteady, free convective, hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic flows for a vertical plate or a vertical channel immersed in a Darcian porous medium in non-rotating systems. This book is related to convective heat and mass transfer including practical applications for analysis and the design of engineering devices and systems involving magnetohydrodynamic and porous media. It is aimed at providing researchers with the most pertinent and up-to-date advances in modeling and analysis of flow, heat, and mass transfer in porous media.
In the literature of this book, different flow models have been incorporated in the area of magnetohydrodynamic fluid flow, heat, and mass transfer in porous media and included recent studies related to fundamental aspects of porous media, viscous dissipation, chemical reaction, forced convection in porous media, modeling of magnetohydrodynamic convective transport in channels, and a number of other important areas.
