Entropy generation in couple stress fluid flow through porous channel with fluid slippage
In this paper, entropy generation in couple stress fluid flowing steadily through a porous channel with slip at the isothermal walls is considered. The Navier slip model is employed at both walls. Analytical solutions for the governing nonlinear boundary–value problems are constructed using Adomian decomposition method (ADM). Important flow properties are presented and discussed including the entropy generation and irreversibility ratio.
