Abstract

Our key objective in the present work is to elaborate the concept of activation energy in chemically reactive flow with the help of modeling and computation. The model investigated is fluid flow over a vertical cylinder in the porous medium with chemical reaction and radiation effect. The similarity transform converted the resulting constitutive equations and partial differential equations (PDEs) into ordinary differential equations (ODEs). The resulting non-linear momentum, heat transfer, and mass transfer coupled equations are computed with the Range-Kutta-Fehlberg method. Both assisting and non-assisting buoyant flow conditions are considered, and observed numeric solutions vary with the transport properties. Characteristics of momentum, heat, and concentration under the applied boundary conditions are analyzed. In addition, the increment in activation energy parameters boosts the Lorentz force and mass transfer rate.
