Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to analyze magnetohydrodynamics fully developed natural convection heat-generating/absorbing slip flow through a porous medium. Adomian decomposition method was applied to find the solutions to the problem.

Design/methodology/approach

In this study, Adomian decomposition method was used.

Findings

Results show that heat generation parameter enhanced the temperature and velocity of the fluid in the annulus. Moreover, slip effect parameter increases the velocity of the fluid.

Originality/value

Originality is in the application of Adomian decomposition method which allowed the slip at interface.
