Abstract

In the present paper, we have discussed the thermosolutal Marangoni force acting on the electrically conducting Casson fluid flow over a permeable horizontal stretching surface. It is presumed that the condition at the interfaces is influenced by the surface tension, which is proportional to the temperature and concentration profiles. At the interface, both concentration and temperature are heated in such a way that they are quadratic functions in x. Furthermore, we have introduced the magnetic field in the transverse direction of the fluid flow along with heat generation/absorption, thermal radiation, viscous dissipation, and first‐order chemical effect with heat and mass flux into the present system. Similarity transformations have been used to convert the system of the nonlinear partial differential equations into a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations (ODEs). The reduced ODEs are then solved using the MATLAB program bvp4c, which is based on the fourth‐order Runge‐Kutta and shooting method.
The impact of various pertinent flow parameters on the flow field, temperature, and species concentration has been studied through graphs. To know the
characteristics of shear stress, heat and mass rate near the boundary, numerical values of them are also calculated and given in the tabular form. The results
show that the momentum boundary layer's thickness is getting thicker with an increase in solutal surface tension ratio, while its opposite trends have been
observed in the thermal boundary layer region, this is due to the Marangoni effect. This Marangoni effect is very much important in the field of melting metals, crystal growth, welding, and electron beam.
