Advances in Difference Equations volume 2021, Article number: 384 (2021)
Abstract
This research note’s objective is to elaborate on the study of the unsteady MHD natural convective flow of the Jeffery fluid with the fractional derivative model. The fluid flow phenomenon happens between two vertical parallel plates immersed in a porous medium. The one plate is moving with the timedependent velocity \(U_{0} f(t)\), while the other is fixed. The mathematical model is presented with the system of the partial differential equation along with physical conditions. Appropriate dimensionless variables are employed in the system of equations, and then this dimensionless model is transformed into the Caputo fractionalorder model and solved analytically by the Laplace transform. The exact expressions for velocity and temperature, which satisfy the imposed initial and boundary conditions, are obtained. Memory effects in the fluid are observed which the classical model fails to elaborate. Interesting results are revealed from the investigation of emerging parameters as Grashof number, Prandtl number, relaxation time parameter, Jeffery fluid parameter, Hartmann number, porosity, and fractional parameter. The results are elucidated with the detailed discussion and the assistance of the graphs. For the sake of validation of results, the corresponding solutions for viscous fluids are also obtained and compared with the solutions already existing in the literature.
Introduction
The interest developing in the studies of nonNewtonian fluid in the last few years is owing to its practical implementation in industry and technology. Some of the common examples of the nonNewtonian fluid are honey, polymer solution, gel, blood, macromolecules solutions, and many others. The nonlinear rheological properties of the nonNewtonian fluid are one of the major aspects of its importance [1–3]. Many rheological problem applications are observed in the field of geophysics, bioscience, cosmetics, drying of paper, food processing, chemical plastic production, petroleum industries, and many more. In literature, many models have been suggested to explicate the rheological conduct of nonNewtonian fluids [4, 5]. In the amidst, Jeffery fluid is noted as an important model of nonNewtonian fluid because of its simplicity. The Jeffery fluid best explains the rheological viscoelastic fluids because it utilizes the time derivative preferably to convected derivative. The linear viscoelastic behavior of Jeffery fluid makes it more appealing in the polymer industries. An important role of Jeffery fluid is observed in blood flow and fluid mechanics due to its viscoelastic behavior. Newtonian fluid can be derived as a special case of Jeffery fluid as it is a significant generalization of a Newtonian fluid. Several studies of the Jeffery fluid flow under different conditions have been carried out by many researchers. Hussain et al. [6] explored the effects of thermal radiation on an MHD incompressible Jeffery nanofluid past a stretching sheet. Hayat et al. [7] employed the homotopy analysis method (HAM) on the timedependent mixed convective flow of the Jeffery fluid and reported thermal radiation effects on it. Idowu et al. [8] analyzed the unsteady MHD oscillatory flow of the Jeffery fluid along with the chemical reaction and noted the impacts of heat and mass transfer. Zin et al. [9] explored the thermal radiation impacts on the free convective Jeffery fluid flow along with ramped wall temperature. The analysis of magnetic dipole effects on the convective Jeffery fluid flow past a permeable plate along suction and injection has been performed by Zeeshan et al. [10]. Some more significant studies on the fluid phenomenon can be traced in [11–19] and the references therein.
The study of nonintegerorder derivatives and integrals is called fractional calculus, which is a generalization of classical calculus. It is an important and fruitful tool which proved its place by controlling and managing the many physical processes in the field of science and engineering such as electromagnetism, nanotechnology, drilling of oil and water, electrochemistry, and heat transfer processes. The property of fractional derivative to describe the memory effects and nonlocal distribution effects makes them helpful in better understanding and description of the complex phenomena. One of the widely used fractional derivatives is Caputo. Shahid [20] wrote a report on the transference of heat and mass in an MHD flow past over an oscillating plate with the Caputo derivative. The concept of Caputo derivative was implemented by Vieru et al. [21] to reveal the interesting results of the natural convective flow of the generalized viscous fluid. Casson fluid model study with the Caputo derivative was done by Khan et al. [22]. The examination of MHD impacts on the transfer of heat of an OldroydB fluid via nonlocal kernels was carried by Riaz [23]. They explored the semianalytical solutions, and the results were demonstrated by graphs. Fourier transform was implemented to the proposed study of slip effects on the oscillatory flows of a fractionalized Jeffery fluid in a permeable medium by Khan [24]. An investigation was carried out on the timedependent free convective flow of the Jeffery fluid past an upright plate via the Laplace integral transform by [25]. The Laplace transform was employed to investigate the analytical solution of the telegraph equation via fractional approach by [26]. Nazish et al. [27] performed the analysis of natural convective fluid flow on the inclined magnetic field. They used the fractional Caputo, Caputo–Fabrizio, and Atangana–Baleanu operators to highlight the influence of transference of heat and mass on fluid flow. Further studies regarding the application of fractional derivatives can be found in the literature and references therein [28–36].
The problem of threedimensional MHD flow of the Jeffery fluid along Newtonian heating was illustrated by Shehzad et al. [37]. Zafar et al. [38] published an article on the analysis of composite fractional relaxation differential equation via a different fractional operator. The exact solution was attained in special functions form. A novel approach of fractional derivatives was employed to study the heat and mass movement of MHD OldroydB fluid along with ramped wall velocity and temperature by [39]. The MHD flow of the Jeffery fluid in a channel was explored by Hayat et al. [40], and the series solutions were attained. The study of impacts of MHD on Jeffery fluid via fractional derivative was carried out by various researchers in [41–45].
Motivated by the above, the objective of this manuscript is to study the heat transfer analysis of the MHD fractional Jeffery fluid in a channel with generalized boundary conditions. The Laplace integral transform has been applied to obtain the exact solutions to the problem. The solutions are presented in the series form. The note is comprised of five sections. Section 2 presents the mathematical model and geometry of the problem. The Caputo fractional differential equations and solution of temperature and velocity are explored in Sect. 3. Limiting cases are discussed in Sect. 4. Graphical illustrations of the influence of the pertinent parameters are presented along with interesting results elaboration in Sect. 5. Closing remarks are stated in Sect. 6.
Problem description
The study of the incompressible, unsteady natural convective flow of MHD Jeffery fluid is elaborated here. The Jeffery fluid is immersed in a porous medium between two vertical plates at \(\chi ^{*}=0\) and \(\chi ^{*}=d\). Initially, both plates and fluid are static with the ambient temperature \(\theta _{\infty }\). As time increase, the acceleration of the plate at \(\chi ^{*}=0\) starts with \(U_{0} f(t^{*})\), keeping the other plate fixed. The plate temperature drops or rises to \(\theta _{d}+(\theta _{w}\theta _{d})g(t^{*})\), and \(f(t^{*})\) and \(g(t^{*})\) are continuous functions that have zero value at \(t^{*}=0\). A transverse magnetic force is applied perpendicular to the surface of the plate which acts perpendicular to the fluid flow. Assuming that the velocity is the function of \(\chi ^{*}\) and \(t^{*}\) only, neglecting the induced magnetic field, viscous dissipation, Joule heating effect, and using Boussinesq’s approximation are shown in Fig. 1, the governing equations for the fluid flow are [46]
along the following initial and boundary conditions:
The dimensionless quantities relations are defined as follows:
The system of partial differential equations after implementing Eq. (6) into Eqs. (1)–(5) is
The associated initial and boundary conditions change into
Caputo fractional formulation and solutions
The nonintegerorder Caputo fractional derivative operator called C derivative [47] is defined as
By implementing the Laplace transform on the C derivative, we get
Exact solution of temperature
In this section, we find the exact solution of temperature by using the Laplace transformation.
Theorem 1
Let \(\mathscr{L}\) be the Laplace operator. Applying this operator on Eq. (8) along with initial and boundary conditions (9) and (10), the exact solution of temperature is
where \(\psi _{1}(\chi ,t)\) and \(\psi _{2}(\chi ,t)\) are solution functions.
Proof
By replacing the time derivative with C derivative operator into Eq. (8), and then applying the Laplace transform, we get
where \(\bar{\psi }(\chi ,q)\) satisfies the conditions
The above differential equation solution by using the corresponding boundary conditions Eq. (14) is
Now consider
Employing the inverse Laplace transform gives the expression of \(\psi _{1} (\chi ,t)\)
Consider now
and implementing the inverse Laplace transform on the above equation, we get
Employing the inverse Laplace transform on Eq. (15), we have
where \(\psi _{1}(\chi ,t)\) and \(\psi _{2}(\chi ,t)\) are expressed in Eq. (17) and Eq. (19) respectively. □
Exact solution of velocity
In this section, we find the exact solution of velocity by using the Laplace transformation.
Theorem 2
Let \(\mathscr{L}\) be the Laplace operator. Applying this operator on Eq. (7) along with initial and boundary conditions (9) and (10), the exact solution of velocity is
where \(I_{1}(\chi ,t)\), \(I_{2}(\chi ,t)\), and \(I_{3}(\chi ,t)\) are solution functions.
Proof
Replacing the time derivative with C derivative operator into Eq. (7) and applying the Laplace transform, we get
where \(\Omega _{0}=\frac{1+\lambda q^{\alpha }}{1+\lambda _{1}}\), \(\Omega _{1}=q^{\alpha }+\frac{1}{K} +{H_{a}}^{2}\), and \(\Omega _{2}=\frac{\Omega _{1}}{\Omega _{0}}\).
The Laplace transformed boundary conditions are
The solution of Eq. (22) by embedding Eq. (15) in it and then using Eq. (23) gives
Let us consider
where
and further simplification of the above expression as
The expression for \(D(\chi ,q)\)
where \(\Omega _{3}= (2k+\chi ) \sqrt{1+\lambda _{1}}\) and \(b=\frac{1}{k}+H_{a}^{2}\).
The inverse Laplace transform of the above equation
Let us consider now
where \(\Omega _{4}= (2k+1\chi ) \sqrt{1+\lambda _{1}}\) and \(b=\frac{1}{k}+H_{a}^{2}\).
Employing the inverse Laplace transform on the above equation gives
Keeping in mind Eq. (29) and Eq. (31) while taking the inverse Laplace transform of Eq. (27), we get
Let us consider now
For simplicity, we write the expression of \(I_{2}(\chi , q)\)
where
and its inverse Laplace transform
where \(a_{0}=P_{r} \lambda \), \(b_{0}=P_{r}+1+\lambda _{1}\), \(c_{0}=b(1+\lambda _{1})\).
and
The inverse Laplace transform on Eq. (37) and Eq. (38) is transformed into respectively
where \(\Omega _{3}= (2k+\chi ) \sqrt{1+\lambda _{1}}\) and \(\Omega _{5}=(2k2\chi ) \sqrt{1+\lambda _{1}}\) and
where \(\Omega _{6}= (2k+1+\chi ) \sqrt{1+\lambda _{1}}\) and \(\Omega _{4}=(2k+1y) \sqrt{1+\lambda _{1}}\).
The \(I_{2}(\chi ,t)\) is expressed as
where we get the values of \(G(\chi ,t)\) and \(H(\chi ,t)\) from Eq. (39) and Eq. (40) respectively.
For simplification,
and its inverse Laplace transform gives
where \(J(\chi ,t)\), \(\psi _{1} (\chi ,t)\), \(\psi _{2} (\chi ,t)\) are attained in Eqs. (36), (17), and (19) respectively.
By implementing the inverse Laplace transform on Eq. (25), bearing in mind the expression of \(I_{1}(\chi ,t)\), \(I_{2}(\chi ,t)\), \(I_{3}(\chi ,t)\) from Eq. (32), Eq. (41), and Eq. (44) respectively, we will get the velocity solution as
□
Limiting cases
Solution of velocity when \(\lambda _{1}\rightarrow 0\)
By taking \(\lambda _{1}\rightarrow 0\), the solution obtained for velocity profile in Eq. (24) changes into the solution of second grade fluid
where \(\Xi _{0}=1+\lambda q^{\alpha }\), \(\Xi _{2}=\frac{\Omega _{1}}{\Xi _{0}}\). For \(\alpha \rightarrow 1\), we will get the limiting result obtained by [46].
Solution of velocity when \(\lambda \rightarrow 0\), \(\lambda _{1}\rightarrow 0\)
By choosing \(\lambda \rightarrow 0\), \(\lambda _{1}\rightarrow 0\), and \(\frac{1}{K}=0\) (absence of porosity), the results obtained for velocity reduce to viscous fluid
For \(\alpha \rightarrow 1\), we will get the result for viscous fluid as obtained by [42] (\(G_{m}=0\)). For exact solutions of the limiting cases, we can follow the same steps as the ones used to find the exact solutions of Jeffery fluid.
Graphical illustration and discussion
The study of transference of heat of timedependent MHD natural convection flow of Jeffery fluid via Caputo fractional derivative operator is elaborated here. The solution for temperature and velocity is explored with the Laplace transform. The obtained exact solution satisfies all the imposed initial and generalized boundary conditions. The functions \(f(t)\) and \(g(t)\) are assumed constant for the velocity and temperature field. To get a perception of the physical significance of the associated parameters for the fluid flow, the assistance of a graph is taken. The physical parameter impacts such as relaxation time λ, Grashof number \(G_{r}\), Prandtl number \(P_{r}\), permeability parameter K, Jeffery fluid parameter \(\lambda _{1}\), and α (memory parameter) on the temperature and velocity profile are illustrated here.
The fractional parameter α control on the temperature profile is presented in Fig. 2. As α varies from small to large, we see the temperature become the increasing function of α. As α increases, boundary layer thickness increase results in elevating the temperature. It is easy to validate the result for \(\alpha \rightarrow 1\), which are already present in the literature [46].
The Prandtl number controls the thickness of the thermal boundary layer. The increase in \(P_{r}\) dominates the momentum diffusivity over the fluid flow, which causes the decline in heat diffusion rate. So \(P_{r}\) elevates, reduces the thermal boundary layer thickness which drops the temperature profile as sketched in Fig. 3.
The governing of time on the temperature profile is plotted in Fig. 4. It has come into notice that the temperature elevates with the increase in time. The spatial variable increase results in an expansion in the thermal boundary layer, and hence temperature escalates.
The governing of memory parameter α on the fluid flow is shown in Fig. 5. It is evident that with the rise in α, fluid flow accelerates. The reason is α increases, boundary layer thickness increases, resulting in acceleration of the velocity.
To elaborate on the impacts of the Prandtl number on the flow of the fluid, Fig. 6 is sketched. Adding up in the value of \(P_{r}\), the fluid becomes thicker, and the thickness of the boundary layer is reduced. Consequently, this causes a slow down in the speed of fluid flow.
In Fig. 7, the impact of \(G_{r}\) on the velocity field is depicted. We noticed the fluid accelerates with greater velocity with higher values of thermal Grashof number \(G_{r}\). Since the Grashof number is a ratio of buoyancy forces to viscous forces, it is evident that enhancement in \(G_{r}\) results in the dominance of buoyancy forces rather than viscous forces, which causes the natural convection and accelerates the velocity.
By keeping the other parameters involved fixed and changing the value of the porosity parameter on the velocity field, a plot is drawn in Fig. 8. It has come to our attention that the fluid velocity drops down with the rise in the value of K. The resistive force due to the porous medium is the major reason for the fall of the fluid velocity.
Figure 9 shows the influence of the Hartmann number on the velocity of the fluid. The rise in Hartmann’s number depreciates the speed of the fluid flow. Physically, Lorentz’s force (resistive force) opposes the fluid motion, which results in the slow down of fluid flow.
The influence of relaxation time on the fluid velocity is sketched in Fig. 10. It is noticed that increasing the relaxation time λ, the velocity curves decrease. The relaxation time increase results in the expansion of the boundary layer, which causes the velocity to fall.
To visualize the effects of Jeffery fluid parameter \(\lambda _{1}\) on the velocity profile, Fig. 11 is plotted. We observed the enhancement in the momentum boundary layer thickness owing to an increase in \(\lambda _{1}\) which increases fluid flow.
Figure 12 focuses on the impact of time on the Jeffery fluid flow. It has been observed that an increase in time drops the velocity of the fluid. From the physical point of view, the boundary layer thickness gets minimized over time.
Closing remarks
The study of MHD Jeffery fluid on two parallel vertical plates dipped in a permeable medium is elaborated here via fractional Caputo approach. The exact expressions for temperature and velocity are attained by the Laplace integral transform. The impacts of associated parameters for the fluid flows are discussed. The main observations are the following:

The increase in the value of fractional parameter α shows an increase in the boundary layer thickness, which increases velocity and temperature.

The decay or slow down is observed in fluid velocity with the rise in \(P_{r}\), λ, \(H_{a}\), and K.

It is noticed that the fluid velocity escalates with elevation in the values of \(G_{r}\) and \(\lambda _{1}\).

Temperature profile declines due to the strong influence in the expansion in the values of \(P_{r}\) and time.

In a limiting case, when \(\alpha \rightarrow 1\), the results recovered are of integerorder derivative Jeffery fluid.

For both \(\lambda \rightarrow 0\), \(\lambda _{1}\rightarrow 0\) and \(\alpha \rightarrow 1\), the results obtained are for viscous fluid.

These results can be evaluated with other fractional derivative approaches, and useful comparison can be drawn between the various fractional approaches.
