### Finite difference solution of convective flow of Upper-Convected Maxwell fluid over a horizontal wedge with suction and heat generation using Cattaneo-Christov heat flux model

**ABSTRACT**

Boundary layer flow of Upper-Convected Maxwell fluid over a wedge with suction and heat generation/absorption is presented in this paper by considering the Cattaneo-Christov heat flux model. The governed equations are transformed into a set of the ordinary differential equation using similarity transformations. A third-order finite difference method for the ordinary differential equation is used to find the local similarity solutions of the problems. The effects of the wedge angle parameter, viscoelastic fluid parameter, thermal relaxation time parameter, and heat generation/absorption parameter are presented in this study.
