Thin film flow over an unsteady stretching sheet with thermocapillarity in presence of magnetic field

ABSTRACT
An analysis is carried out to study the effects of thermocapillarity on thin film flow over an unsteady stretching sheet in presence of uniform transverse magnetic field and internal heat source/sink. Using a similarity transformation the governing time dependent boundary layer equations are reduced to a set of coupled ordinary differential equations and then solved numerically for some representative values of non-dimensional parameters using Nachtsheim and Swigert shooting iteration technique together with Runge-Kutta sixth-order integration scheme. It is observed that the thermocapillary action reduces the rate of heat transfer at the surface while dealing with conducting fluid in presence of magnetic field.
