Nonlinear Radiative Flow of Casson Nanoliquid Past a Cone and Wedge with Magnetic Dipole: Mathematical Model of Renewable Energy
Solar energy is an important source of energy for all the living things. Other sources of energy such as electricity and heat can be converted from solar radiation. The recent advanced technologies are utilized to convert solar energy into electricity. In this direction, nanoliquids are quite useful because they directly absorb or scatter solar radiation. Nanofluids are selected to be best aspirant for the development of renewable energy. They are successfully utilized in the processes of renewable energy. Due to such importance of nanofluids, we investigate the effects of nanoparticles on nonlinear convective and radiative flow of Casson liquid. Two cases are considered namely flow due to a cone and flow due to a wedge. In addition to traditional temperature dependent heat source aspect an exponential space dependent heat source effect is examined. Explicitly heat/mass transfer mechanism is analysed due to prescribed linear surface temperature/particles volume fraction. Problem formulation is presented using conservation laws of mass, momentum, energy and nanoparticles volume fraction under boundary layer approximations. The solutions to the dimensionless problem are computed via Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg based shooting method. Results are plotted and examined. The exponential space dependent and thermal dependent heat source aspects are dominates on thermal field. Further, heat and mass transfer rates are higher in case of flow created by cone than flow created by wedge. The liquid velocity is higher in the case of flow due to wedge than flow due to cone case.
