ABSTRACT
The objective of this paper is to analyze the influence of thermal radiation and chemical reaction on the boundary layer flow of a magnetohydrodynamic Jeffrey nanofluid over a permeable cone in the presence of thermophoresis, Brownian motion effects. The set of non-linear governing partial differential equations are transformed into set of non-linear coupled ordinary differential equations by using self suitable transformations, which are then solved numerically using Runge-Kutta fourth order along with shooting technique. The obtained results present the effects of various nondimensional governing parameters on velocity, temperature and concentration profiles. Also, enumerated and analyzed the friction factor, local Nusselt and Sherwood numbers. We presented dual solutions in the presence and absence of the magneticfield and found an excellent agreement of the present results with the existed studies under some special limited cases. Result indicates that an increase in the buoyancy parameter increases the heat and mass transfer rate in the presence and absence of the transverse magneticfield and dual solutions exists only for certain range of magneticfield parameter.
