Abstract

In this paper the problem of mixed convection on a moving vertical cylinder with suction in a moving micropolar fluid medium has been investigated, using finite element method. The effect of important parameters, namely micropolar parameter, suction parameter and velocity coefficient parameter have been discussed on the velocity, microrotation and temperature functions when the velocity of the cylinder is greater than the free stream velocity. Skin friction and the Nusselt number have also been computed, which are given in the table. The temperature distribution is effected moderately by the motion of the cylinder as well with the buoyancy parameter.
