MHD Thermal Radiative Stretching Surface of a Micropolar Nanofluid Flow with Heat Source Parameter

Authors(2) :-Srinivas Maripala, Kishan Naikoti

A numerical study of variable thermal conductivity and radiation on the flow and heat transfer of an electrically conducting micropolar nanofluid over a continuously stretching surface with varying temperature in the presence of a magnetic field and heat source/sink is presented. The governing conservation equations of Angular momentum, energy, momentum and mass are converted into a system of non-linear ordinary differential equations by means of similarity transformation. The resulting coupled system non-linear ordinary differential equations are solved by implicit finite difference method along with the Thomas algorithm. The results are analyzed for the effect of different physical parameters on velocity, angular velocity, temperature and concentration fields are presented through graphs.
