### MODELING AND ANALYSIS OF THE IMPACT OF EXOTHERMIC CATALYTIC CHEMICAL REACTION AND VISCOUS DISSIPATION ON NATURAL CONVECTION FLOW DRIVEN ALONG A CURVED SURFACE

**ABSTRACT**

The impact of exothermic catalytic chemical reaction and viscous dissipation on natural-convection heat transfer along the curved shape is investigated. In this study, the trend of exothermic catalytic chemical reaction has been introduced in the energy and mass concentration equation. Furthermore, the tangential component of acceleration due to gravity, gx, as buoyancy force has coupled in momentum equation describe the curved shape. The flow model of the problem is formulated in terms of coupled non-linear PDE together with suitable boundary conditions. From the numerical solutions of the governing equations, it is found that velocity field, temperature distribution and the mass concentration is associated with the dimensionless parameters involved in the flow model. The novelty of the current study is that the characteristics of heat and fluid-flow mechanism are specifically associated with the different values of index parameter n.
