This paper investigates the influence of melting and thermo-diffusion effect on natural convection heat and mass transfer from vertical flat plate in a non-Newtonian fluid saturated non-Darcy porous medium. The wall and the ambient medium are maintained at constant but different levels of temperature and concentration such that the heat and mass transfer occurs from the wall to the medium. The Ostwald-de Waele power law model is used to characterize the non-Newtonian fluid behavior. A… CONTINUE READING
