AB - This paper presents a numerical study of a double diffusive convection in an inclined square porous cavity filled with an electrically conducting binary mixture. The upper and bottom walls are maintained at a constant temperatures and concentrations whereas the left and right walls are assumed to be adiabatic and impermeable. A uniform and tilted magnetic field is applied at an angle, γ, about the horizontal, it is obvious that this is related to the orientation of the magnetic force that can help or oppose the buoyant force. The Dupuit-Darcy flow model, which includes effects of the inertial parameter, with the Boussinesq approximation, energy, and species transport equations are solved numerically using the classical finite difference method. Governing parameters of the problem under study are the thermal Rayleigh number, Hartmann number, Lewis number, the buoyancy ratio, inclination angle, and tilting angle of the magnetic field. The numerical results are reported on the contours of streamline, temperature, and concentration and for the average Nusselt and Sherwood numbers for various parametric conditions. It is demonstrated that both the inertial effect parameter and the magnetic field, have a strong influence on the strength of the natural convection heat and mass transfer within the porous layer.
