dc.description.abstractThis work consists of a theoretical boundary layer analysis of heat and mass transport in a viscous fluid-embracing gyrotactic micro-organism over a cylinder. The flow governing equations are modeled through boundary layer approximations. The governing non-linear partial differential equations are lessened to a set of nonlinear ordinary differential equations using similitude transformation. The boundary layer equations are elucidated numerically, applying the spectral relaxation method with the aid of the computational software MATLAB. The impact of several pertinent parameters on flow convective characteristic phenomena are explored through the use of graphs and tables and are discussed with in-depth physical descriptions. In addition, the friction factor, the rate of heat transfer, rate of mass transfer, and the density number of the motile microorganism are also presented with respect to the above controlled parameters. It is noticed that for the increasing values of the magnetic parameter with reductions and enhancements, the density of the motile microorganism is a declining function of, and the concentration field enhances with the strengthening of, whereas it reduces with the rise of. Furthermore, the streamline patters are emphasized for the impact of controlled flow variables. Current outcomes are compared with the available results from previous cases and are observed to be in agreement.
