Languages of publication
This paper presents the application of Chebyshev spectral collocation method to flow analysis of a micropolar fluid conveyed through porous channel driven by suction or injection with high mass transfer. Effects of flow and rotation parameters such as Reynolds number and micro rotation parameters on the flow characteristics of the micropolar fluid are investigated using the developed approximate analytical solutions through the method. Comparing the results of the numerical solutions obtained in this study with the other results of the other methods in literature, very good agreements are established. The results obtained from this work can be used to further the study of the behavior of micropolar fluids in applications such as lubricants, blood flow porous media, micro channels and flow in capillaries.
