Abstract

In this paper, we reconsider the problem of fully developed natural convection heat and mass transfer of a micropolar fluid in a vertical channel with asymmetric wall temperatures and concentrations. The resulting boundary-value problem is solved analytically by the homotopy analysis method. The accuracy of the present solution is found to be in excellent agreement with the solutions of Cheng. (Int. Commun. Heat Mass Transfer 2006; 33:627-635).
