MHD Slip Flow and Convective Heat Transfer of Nanofluids over a Permeable Stretching Surface

S. P. Anjali Devi [2] | T. Elakkiya Priya


Abstract: MHD slip flow and convective heat transfer of nanofluids over a vertical stretching surface subjected to injection has been analyzed. Two types of nanofluids such as Copper-Water nanofluid and Alumina-Water nanofluid are considered for the present study. The Boundary layer equations of motion and energy which are non-linear partial differential equations are reduced to non-linear ordinary differential equations by means of similarity transformations. The resulting non-linear ordinary differential equations are solved numerically by most efficient Nachtsheim-Swigert shooting iteration technique for satisfaction of asymptotic boundary conditions along with Fourth Order Runge-Kutta Integration Method. Numerical computations are carried out for various values of slip parameter, Injection parameter, Magnetic interaction parameter, and solid volume fraction. Also the values of Skin friction Coefficient and Nusselt number are obtained numerically and are tabulated.
