Abstract


The aim of this paper, is to use a more realistic model which incorporates the effects of Brownian motion and thermophoresis for studying the effect of boundary conditions and some control parameters on the onset of convective instability in presence of a uniform heat source in a confined medium filled of a Newtonian nanofluid layer and heated from below, this layer is assumed to have a low concentration of nanoparticles. The linear study which was achieved in this investigation shows that the thermal stability of Newtonian nanofluids depends of the state of the horizontal boundaries (rigid or free), the heat source strength ,the buoyancy forces, the Brownian motion, the thermophoresis and other thermo-physical properties of nanoparticles. The governing differential equations are transformed into a set of ordinary differential equations by using similarity transformations, these equations will be solved analytically by converting our boundary value problem to an initial value problem, after this step we will approach the searched solutions numerically with polynomials of high degree to obtain a fifth-order-accurate solution.
