DUAL SOLUTIONS OF BOUNDARY LAYER FLOW WITH HEAT AND MASS TRANSFERS OVER AN EXPONENTIALLY SHRINKING CYLINDER: STABILITY ANALYSIS
Boundary layer flow with heat and mass transfers over a stretching/shrinking cylinder has been investigated. The governing partial differential equations are converted into a set of ordinary differential equations using suitable similarity transformations and have been solved numerically using MATLAB built in bvp4c solver technique. The numerical results are graphically discussed in the form of velocity, temperature and concentration distributions for various values of flow parameters. Numerical results show that dual solutions are possible in specific range of the suction parameter. A stability analysis is executed to obtain which solution is linearly stable and physically realizable.
