On combined effect of thermal radiation and viscous dissipation in hydromagnetic micropolar fluid flow between two stretchable disks

ABSTRACT
In this paper, we investigate numerically the flow and heat transfer characteristics of a viscous incompressible electrically conducting micropolar fluid between two infinite uniformly stretching disks, taking the radiation and viscous dissipation effects into consideration. The transformed self similar coupled ODEs are solved using quasi linearization method. The study may be beneficial in flow and thermal control of polymeric processing.
