In Sections 3 and 4, mixed convection boundary-layer nanofluid flow along an inclined plate embedded in a porous medium has been solved analytically using two terms of the HPM and numerically by the ChPDM technique, respectively.
Figure 1 shows the comparison between the HPM and ChPDM solutions for the nanoparticle concentration distribution [phi]([eta]) at different values of Brownian motion parameter [N.sub.b], where [N.sub.t] = 0.5, [N.sub.r] = 0.5, Le = 10, [Ra.sub.x]/[Pe.sub.x] = 0.5, and [alpha] = [pi]/6.
On applying HPM, it was found that two terms of the homotopy series are enough to achieve very good solutions when compared with the accurate results obtained numerically via ChPDM. This was investigated for various values of the appropriated physical parameters: temperature distribution [theta]([eta]) and nanoparticle concentration distribution [phi]([eta]) at variation of the thermophoretic parameter ([N.sub.t]), Brownian motion parameter ([N.sub.b]), buoyancy ratio parameter ([N.sub.r]), angle of inclination ([alpha]), Lewis number (Le), and mixed convection parameter ([Ra.sub.x]/[Pe.sub.x]).
CHPDM initiated the program in a limited geographic area (Baltimore City).
The University of Maryland Baltimore County issued a detailed information packet for the private vendors entitled "Request for Proposals RFP-18946 W for Case Management Services." Following clearly defined steps the private sector bids were evaluated and ranked by CHPDM. Once ranked, the bids were reviewed by the State's Board of Public Works.
As distinguished from case management permitted under Section 1915 (g) of the Social Security Act, enhanced case management services give the case manager the ability to `redesign the benefit plan' for the overall benefit of the patient, within program financial guidelines" (CHPDM, 1994a, p.
Upon closure of the case CHPDM requests a closure report from the nurse case manager.
The CHPDM's organizational chart defines the personnel involved with this project.
The next step is to form training sessions at CHPDM for the recently hired case managers and more complete development of a strategic plan.
