### FLOW OF A SECOND GRADE FLUID WITH CONVECTIVE BOUNDARY CONDITIONS

**ABSTRACT**

The flow and heat transfer in a second grade fluid over a stretching sheet subjected to convective boundary conditions are investegated. Similarity transformations have been used for the reduction of partial differential equation into the ordinary differential. Homotopy analysis method (HAM) has been utilized for the series solutions. Graphical results are displayed and analyzed. Computations for local Nusselt number have been carried out.
