Abstract


In this study, we examine the Magneto-hydrodynamics (MHD) heat and mass flow of nano-fluid over a non-linearly permeable stretching sheet. The resulting partial differential equations are converted to a system of ordinary differential equations using the similarity transformation and solved numerically using shooting technique with fourth order Runge-Kutta method. The effect of some fluid parameters on the momentum, thermal and nanoparticle volume fraction boundary layers were expatiated for prescribed surface temperature and constant surface temperature through graphs. An excellent agreement was found when the results obtained in this study were compared with results in previous literature.
