DISPERSION OF A SOLUTE IN A COUPLE STRESS FLUID WITH CHEMICAL REACTION USING GENERALIZED DISPERSION MODEL
N. P. Ratchagar and R. Vijayakumar
The present work was carried out to investigate the dispersion of a solute in a non-Newtonian fluid flow in an inclined channel bounded by porous beds using Generalized Dispersion Model. This model is used to analysis the dispersion of solute in blood flow and also externally and internally there is an effect of chemical reaction and magnetic field. It found that the dispersion coefficient decreases due the chemical reaction but accumulating when there is no chemical reaction. The impacts of couple stress parameter, Reynolds number, Froude number, Hartmann number on the velocity profile, dispersion coefficient and mean concentration are discussed in detail with the help of graphs.
