Abstract

An analysis for magnetic dipole with stagnation point flow of micropolar nanofluids is modeled for numerical computation subject to thermophoresis, multi buoyancy, injection/suction, and thermal radiation. The partial derivative is involved in physical consideration, which is transformed to format of ordinary differential form with the aid of similarity functions. The variational finite element procedure is harnessed and coded in Matlab script to obtain the numerical solution of the coupled non-linear ordinary differential problem. The fluid temperature, velocity, tiny particles concentration, and vector of micromotion are studied for two case of buoyancy (assisting 0 < λ, and opposing 0 > λ) through finite-element scheme. The velocity shows decline against the rising of ferromagnetic interaction parameter (β) (assisting 0 < λ and opposing 0 > λ), while the inverse behaviour is noted in micro rotation profile. Growing the thermo-phoresis and microrotation parameters receded the rate of heat transfer remarkable, and micromotion and fluid velocity enhance directly against buoyancy ratio. Additionally, the rate of couple stress increased against rising of thermal buoyancy (λ) and boundary concentration (m) in assisting case, but opposing case shows inverse behavior. The finite element scheme convergency was tested by changing the mesh size, and also test the validity with available literature.
