A numerical approach for two-dimensional Sutterby fluid flow bounded at a stagnation point with an inclined magnetic field and thermal radiation impacts

The present study investigates the impacts of thermal radiation and inclined magnetic field on the Sutterby fluid by capitalizing Cattaneo-Christov heat flux system. The suitable transformations from partial differential equations (PDEs) into ordinary differential equations (ODEs) are achieved by capitalizing the strength of similarity conversion system. Well known numerical shooting technique is used along with integrated strength Runge Kutta method of fourth order. The proposed results are compared with Lobatto 111A method which strengthen the convergence and accuracy of present fluidic system. The skin friction coefficients and Nusselt number are numerically exhibited in tabular form, while the parameter of interests in terms of velocity ratio parameter, power law index, the thermal radiation parameter, Prandtl number, Deborah number, magnetic parameter. Here in this contemporary investigation, the phenomenon of thermal radiation on an inclined magnetic field using Sutterby capitalizing Cattaneo-Christov heat flux model has been discussed. The resulting complex nonlinear ODEs are tackled numerically by utilizing a famous shooting technique with the integrated strength of the Runge-Kutta method of fourth order. The obtained numerical results are compared with the MATLbuilt-in solver bvp4c. The numerical values of the skin friction coefficient and reduced Nusselt number are narrated in tabular form, while some proficient parameters like velocity ratio parameter, power-law index, Deborah number, magnetic parameter, inclined magnetic angle, the thermal radiation parameter, Reynolds number and Prandtl number on the velocity and temperature profiles have been discussed numerically as well as graphically. Outcomes of the proposed research show that by increasing the inclined angle, enhancement is seen in the skin-friction coefficient and reduces the Nusselt number. Moreover, by increasing the Reynolds number, the temperature profile declines initially and then moves upward in the channel. The stability and convergence of the proposed methodolgy in validated through residual errors based different tolerances.
