Abstract

The inherent irreversibility in a steady hydromagnetic permeable channel flow of a conducting fluid with variable electrical conductivity and asymmetric Navier slip at the channel walls in the presence of induced electric field is theoretically investigated. The model nonlinear governing equations are obtained and numerically solved using shooting quadrature. Numerical results for velocity and temperature profiles are utilised to compute the entropy generation number and the Bejan number. Pertinent results are displayed graphically and discussed quantitatively.

Keywords : MHD channel glow; entropy generation; suction/injection; variable electrical conductivity; current density; asymmetric Navier slips

PACS : 47; 47.11 Hj
