Flow over a stretching surface in a Darcy-Forchheimer environment.

What is it about?

This research work is all about understanding the behavior of fluid flows with higher flow rates i.e. understanding the flow situations when Darcy's law fails to give fails to give a proper estimate of velocity gradient, under the influence of magnetic field. This kind of flows were not discussed previously.

Why is it important?

The outcomes of this study can be used in various engineering/industrial situations such as gradual cooling of continuous stretching metal or plastic stripes which have various application in mass production, heat pipe technology, where the pipes are stretched linearly using Planishing hammer, etc.

Perspectives

RAJAT TRIPATHI

While working out this research problem, I learned few new things about physics behind such flows as well as numerical computations. The outcomes of this article has been used by me as well as some other researchers. I hope you find this article interesting .
