Exploration of Non-Linear Thermal Radiation and Suspended Nanoparticles Effects on Mixed Convection Boundary Layer Flow of Nanoliquids on a Melting Vertical Surface
In this paper, the significance of increasing nonlinear thermal radiation on boundary layer flow of some nanofluids is deliberated upon. The effects of magnetic field, melting and viscous dissipation are also considered. The numerical results are obtained for governing flow equations and compared with the previously published results for a special case and found to be in excellent agreement. The effects of various physical parameters such as melting parameter, thermal radiation parameter, temperature ratio parameter and Eckert number on velocity and temperature profiles are analyzed through several plots. The numerical results of physical quantities of engineering interest such as skin friction coefficient and local Nusselt number are presented and discussed in detail. It is found that the nonlinear thermal radiation effect is favourable for heating processes than linear thermal radiation effect. Additionally, the moving parameter and melting parameter can be used to reduce the friction or drag forces.
