The Effects of Thermal Radiation and Inclined Magnetic Force on Tangent Hyperbolic Fluid Flow with Zero Normal Flux of Nanoparticles at the Exponential Stretching Sheet
In this article, we have presented the two-dimensional tangent hyperbolic fluid with zero normal flux of nanoparticles over an exponentially stretching sheet in presence of thermal radiation along with inclined magnetic field and radiative heat flux. The governing non-linear system of partial differential equations along with boundary conditions for this fluid flow is reduced to a system of non-linear ordinary differential equations by using appropriate similarity transformations. The reduced system is numerically solved by Runge-Kutta fourth order method with shooting technique. The influence of emerging non-dimensional parameters on velocity, temperature and nanoparticle volume fraction profiles have been discussed and presented graphically. Furthermore, the effects of these parameters on skin friction coefficient and local Nusselt number at the sheet are exhibited and discussed. It is noticed that the thermal boundary layer thickness enhanced with the increase in Weissenberg number (We), the angle of inclination (δ), power-law index (n) and heat source/sink parameter (QH ). Whereas, the velocity profiles and the skin friction coefficient decreases with an increase in Weissenberg number and power-law index.
