Effect of pressure work on free convection flow from an isothermal truncated cone with temperature dependent viscosity

M. Ajaykumar, A. H. Srinivasa

Abstract


The object of this article is to analyze the impact of pressure work on a steady free flow of convection over an isothermal truncated cone with viscosity dependent on temperature. The numerical results of the converted non-similar boundary layer equations are found in this paper by a finite differential method with quasi-linearization scheme. The effects of several physical parameters are represented graphically for changed values of the pressure work (ϵ) and the parameter of viscosity dependent on temperature (ε). Results indicate that both pressure function parameter and temperature dependent viscosity are strongly impacted by skin friction and transferring of heat. It is perceived that the skin friction coefficient decreases and the transferring of heat coefficient rises, increasing the pressure work (ϵ).
