MHD Boundary Layer Flow of Nanofluid Over a Nonlinear Stretching Sheet with Effect of Non-Uniform Heat Source and Chemical Reaction
The aim of the present paper is to study MHD boundary layer flow of a nanofluid over a non-linear stretching sheet with the effects of non-uniform heat source and chemical reaction. The governing equations of the problem are transformed into non-linear ordinary differential equations by using similarity transformations. The resulting equations are solved numerically by using an implicit finite difference method known as Keller Box method. The effect of various physical parameters on the dimensionless velocity, dimensionless temperature and dimensionless concentration profile are showed graphically and discussed for the relative parameters. Present results are comparisons have been made with previously published work and results are found to be very good agreement. Numerical results for local skin friction, local Nusselt number and local Sherwood number are tabulated for various physical parameters.
