J. Heat Transfer 141(2), 022401 (Nov 26, 2018) (13 pages) Paper No: HT-18-1027; doi: 10.1115/1.4040415 History: Received January 14, 2018; Revised May 17, 2018

The present research aims to examine the micropolar nanofluid flow of Casson fluid between two parallel plates in a rotating system with effects of thermal radiation. The influence of Hall current on the micropolar nanofluids have been taken into account. The fundamental leading equations are transformed to a system of nonlinear differential equations using appropriate similarity variables. An optimal and numerical tactic is used to get the solution of the problem. The convergence and comparison have been shown numerically. The impact of the Hall current, Brownian movement, and thermophoresis phenomena of Casson nanofluid have been mostly concentrated in this investigation. It is found that amassed Hall impact decreases the operative conductivity which intends to increase the velocity field. The temperature field enhances with larger values of Brownian motion thermophoresis effect. The impacts of the Skin friction coefficient, heat flux, and mass flux have been deliberate. The skin friction coefficient is observed to be larger for k=0, as compared to the case of k=0.5. Furthermore, for conception and visual demonstration, the embedded parameters have been deliberated graphically.
