MHD flow of Powell-Eyring fluid by a stretching cylinder with newtonian heating

This paper examines magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow of Powell-Eyring fluid by a stretching cylinder with thermal radiation. Analysis has been presented through inclined magnetic field. Characteristics of heat transfer are analyzed with advanced boundary condition (i.e., Newtonian heating). Suitable transformations convert the nonlinear partial differential equations to the nonlinear ordinary differential equations. Convergent series solutions of momentum and energy equations are developed. Effects of different pertinent parameters on the velocity and temperature distributions are shown graphically. Numerical values of the skin friction coefficient and Nusselt number are also computed and analyzed. Comparison of the present study with the previous published work is also examined. Higher values of fluid M and curvature parameters show enhancement in the fluid velocity while opposite behavior is observed for Hartman number and Suction parameter. Conjugate and radiation parameters lead to an increase in temperature.
