Solution of fully developed free convection of a micropolar fluid in a vertical channel by homotopy analysis method.

*(English)*Zbl 1163.76047Summary: We reconsider the problem of fully developed natural convection heat and mass transfer of a micropolar fluid in a vertical channel with asymmetric wall temperatures and concentrations. The resulting boundary value problem is solved analytically by the homotopy analysis method. The accuracy of the solution is found to be in agreement with the solutions of C. Y. Cheng [Int. Commun. Heat Mass Transfer 33, 627–635 (2006)].
