Finite Element Technique for Two-Dimensional MHD Stagnation-Point Flow in the Presence Porous Medium
Applied Science (Mathematics), Echelon Institute of Technology, Faridabad, Haryana-121101, India.
The present study of steady two dimensional stagnation point flow of an incompressible viscous electrically conducting fluid over a flat plate is investigated. The governing partial differential equations are solved by finite element technique. It depicts that velocity profile decreases with the increasing values of porosity parameter K and increasing values of magnetic field parameter M. The velocity profile increases with the increasing values of the time t.
