Flow field and heat transfer in a channel with a permeable wall filled with Al2O3-Cu/water micropolar hybrid nanofluid, effects of chemical reaction and magnetic field

In this study, flow field and heat transfer of Al2O3-Cu/water micropolar hybrid nanofluid is investigated in a permeable channel using the least square method. The channel is encountered to chemical reaction, and a constant magnetic field is also applied. The bottom wall is hot and coolant fluid is injected into the channel from the top wall. The effects of different parameters such as the Reynolds number, the Hartmann number, microrotation factor and nanoparticles concentration on flow field and heat transfer are examined. The results show that with increasing the Hartmann number and the Reynolds number, the Nusselt and Sherwood numbers increase. Furthermore, when the hybrid nanofluid is applied rather than pure nanofluid, the heat transfer coefficient will increase significantly. It is also observed that in the case of generative chemical reaction, the fluid concentration is more than the case of destructive chemical reaction. Moreover, the Nusselt number and Sherwood number when the micropolar model is used, is less than when it is not considered.
