    • Abstract


      This paper discusses the effect of heat and mass flux on the natural convective laminar flow of a viscous incompressible fluid under the influence of radiation, magnetic field and Joule heating. The partial differentialequations related to the problem have been changed as a set of ordinary differential equations employing non-dimensional quantities. Semianalytical approach such as the Adomian decomposition method (ADM) is employedto solve the system of ordinary differential equations. The behaviour of characterising parameters on the velocity, heat and mass transfer profiles, and the engineering quantities of interest, i.e. skin friction, heat and mass transfer rates and other indices are presented through graphs
