Abstract

Numerous techniques in designing zones happen at high temperature and functions under high temperature are in a way that involves non-linear radiation. In weakly conducting fluids, however, the currents induced by an external magnetic field alone are too small, and an external electric field must be applied to achieve an efficient flow control. Gailitis and Lielausis, devised Riga plate to generate a crossed electric and magnetic fields which can produce a wall parallel Lorentz force in order to control the fluid flow. It acts as an efficient agent to reduce the skin friction. So, in this paper, we start the numerical investigation on the three-dimensional flow of nanofluids with the inclusion of non-linear radiation past a Riga plate. To this end, the numerical investigation is conducted on the three-dimensional flow of nanofluids with the inclusion of non-linear radiation past a Riga plate. Water (H2O) and Sodium Alginate (NaC6H9O7) are the base fluids, whereas Magnetite (Fe3O4) and Aluminium oxide (Al2O3) are the nanoparticles. The mathematical formulation for Sodium Alginate base fluid is separated through the Casson model. Suitable transformations on governing partial differential equations yield strong non-linear ordinary differential equations. Numerical solutions for the renewed system are constructed by fourth-order Runge-Kutta method with shooting technique. Various deductions for flow and heat transfer attributes are sketched and discussed for various physical parameters. Furthermore, the similarities with existing results were found for the physical quantities of interest. It was discovered, that the temperature ratio parameter and the radiation parameter enhance the rate of heat transport. Moreover, the NaC6H9O7 - Al2O3 nanofluid improves the heat transfer rate. Likewise, H2O-Fe3O4 nanofluid stimulates the local skin friction coefficients.
