Stagnation Point Flow of MHD Eyring-Powell Nanofluid Fluid Over Exponential Stretching Sheet with Convective Heat Transfer
In this paper an analysis is carried out to examine the effect of convective heat transfer on stagnation-point flow of Eyring Powell nanofluid over an exponential stretching surface. Moreover, we have considered the effect of velocity slip and thermal convective boundary condition. Condition of zero normal flux of nanoparticles at the wall for the stretched flow phenomena is applied in the present study. Using suitable similarity transformations, the governing boundary-layer equations corresponding to the momentum, energy and concentration are reduced to a set of self-similar non-linear ordinary differential equation. The transformed equations are then solved numerically using Keller Box method. Effects of various physical parameters are displayed graphically for velocity, temperature and concentration profiles. Also the behaviour of skin friction coefficient, Nusselt number and Sherwood number are presented graphically and tabular.
