A chiral molecule is a type of molecule that lacks an internal plane of symmetry and thus has a non-superposable mirror image of a molecule. Chiral fluid is a fluid which has molecules and exhibits the chirality. The influence of viscous dissipation on convective flow, heat transfer, and mass transfer through viscous incompressible chiral fluid through a vertical porous layer immersed in porous medium in the presence of a uniform magnetic field is investigated. The coupled non-linear equations governing the motion are solved analytically using the regular perturbation method with Eckert number Ec as perturbation parameter. The effect of magnetochiral number M, porous parameter σ, Grashof number Gr, Eckert number E, and Schmidt number Sc on velocity, temperature distribution, mass flow rate, skin friction and rate of heat transfer are depicted graphically and some important conclusions are drawn.

Keywords: Oberbeck convection, chiral fluid and porous medium.

Article published in International Journal of Current  Engineering  and Technology, Vol.3,No.5(Dec- 2013)
