ON HYDROMAGNETIC BOUNDARY LAYER FLOW OF NANOFLUIDS OVER A PERMEABLE MOVING SURFACE WITH NEWTONIAN HEATING
The magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) boundary layer flow of nanofluids past a permeable moving flat plate with convective heating at the plate surface has been studied. The nanofluids considered contain water as the base fluid with copper (Cu) or Alumina (Al2O3) as the nanoparticles. The model equations are obtained and solved numerically by applying shooting iteration technique together with the fourth order Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg integration scheme. The influence of pertinent parameters on velocity, temperature, skin friction and Nusselt number are investigated. The obtained results are presented graphically and the physical aspects of the problem discussed quantitatively.
