Abstract

The flow of an incompressible grey fluid through a horizontal channel filled with a saturated medium of variable viscosity has been considered in this paper. Such flows in porous media have several applications in industrial processes. For the radiative effects a two flux model has been used in order to simplify the governing integro-differential equations for which closed-form solutions are not obtainable. The problem has been solved by employing a highly successful tri-diagonal, implicit, iterative, finite difference method. The effects of the pertinent parameters on the velocity and temperature distributions have been shown in several figures.
