Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) nanoliquid are significant for thermal conductivity enhancement. The examination of heat transfer of crushing time-subordinate liquid flow past isometric surfaces has throughout the decades been a field of consideration for its wide scope of physical necessities: nourishment preparation, pressure, grease setup and hydrodynamic machines. Entropy generation in the squeezing flow of viscous nanomaterial is developed. MHD, Brownian motion and thermophoresis are considered. Porous space between the disks is taken. The analysis is carried out in the presence of radiation and viscous dissipation.
Nonlinear systems are reduced to an ordinary one through similarity variables. The convergent solution is developed by employing the homotopy analysis technique (HAM).
Convergent homotopic solutions are developed for the velocity, temperature and concentration. Entropy generation and Bejan number are explained. Skin friction and Nusselt number and Sherwood number are analyzed. For a higher approximation of porosity, parameter velocity is augmented. Temperature upsurges for larger thermophoresis and Brownian diffusion parameters. Concentration has an increasing effect on thermophoresis and Brownian diffusion parameters. For the rising value of the radiation parameter, both the Bejan number and entropy rate have increasing behaviors.
No such work is yet published in the literature.
