Abstract

This paper presents a finite element solution for the mixed convection micropolar flow driven by a porous stretching sheet with uniform suction. The governing partial differential equations are solved numerically by the using finite element method and the results have been compared with those obtained by using the quasi-linearization method. The effect of surface conditions on the velocity, microrotation as well as for temperature functions has been studied. It is noticed that the micropolar fluids help in the reduction of drag forces and also act as a cooling agent.
