    • Abstract


      The main focus in this study is to study the flow of a viscous fluid through a curved stretched surface. Soret and Dufour effects along with Joule heating are incorporated. Appropriate transformations yield the nonlinear ordinary differential system. Convergent series solutions of velocity, temperature and concentration are constructed. Graphical illustrations thoroughly demonstrate the features of the involved pertinent parameters. Skin friction coefficient, Nusselt and Sherwood numbers are also obtained and discussed graphically. Current computations reveal that the radial velocity experience decline with the increase of Hartman number. Further, fluid temperature declines for higher Prandtl and Soret numbers.
