    Abstract: The combustion of aluminum nano-particles under fuel-lean conditions is studied in the counterflow configuration by means of analytical approach. The flame is assumed to consist of three zones: preheat, flame, and post flame regimes. By extraction and non-dimensionalizing of energy equations and then solving them in preheat zone and using perturbat... Show More

    Abstract: Marangoni convection in a horizontal layer with a uniform internal heat source and vertical magnetic field is analyzed. The boundaries are considered to be rigid, however permeable, and insulated to temperature perturbations. The upper surface of a fluid layer is deformably free. The eigen value equations of the perturbed state obtained from the no... Show More
