• NUMERICAL STUDY OF NON-NEWTONIAN JEFFREY FLUID FLOW IN AN INCLINED VERTICAL PLATE

K. SUBBARAYUDU*

Abstract


The non-linear steady state boundary layer flow, heat transfer of an incompressible non-Newtonian Jeffery’s fluid from an inclined vertical plate is considered in this study. The transformed conservation equations are solved numerically subject to physically appropriate boundary conditions using a versatile, implicit, finite-difference technique.  The influence of non-dimensional parameters, namely Deborah number (De), Prandtl number (Pr), ratio of relaxation to retardation times () and dimensionless tangential coordinate () on velocity, temperature evolution in the boundary layer region are examined in details. It is observed that the velocity is reduced when Deborah number increases. where as temperature is enhanced. Increasing enhances the velocity, but temperature reduced.
