A MATHEMATICAL MODEL ON MHD SLIP FLOW AND HEAT TRANSFER OVER A NONLINEAR STRETCHING SHEET

ABSTRACT
Some analyses have been carried out to study the influence of suction/blowing, thermal radiation and temperature dependent fluid properties on the hydro-magnetic incompressible electrically conducting fluid flow and heat transfer over a permeable stretching surface with partial slip boundary conditions. It is assumed that the fluid viscosity and the thermal conductivity vary as an inverse function and linear function of temperature respectively. Using the similarity transformation, the governing system of non-linear partial differential equations are transformed into non-linear ordinary differential equations and are solved numerically using symbolic software MATHEMATICA 7.0. The effects of various physical parameters on the flow and heat transfer characteristics as well as the skin friction coefficient and Nusselt number are illustrated graphically. The physical aspects of the problem are highlighted and discussed.
