Abstract


This paper deals with the steady two-dimensional laminar flow of a viscous nanofluid of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow and heat transfer of the boundary layer flow over a nonlinear stretching sheet. The flow is caused by a nonlinear stretching sheet with effect of velocity slip and variable temperature in the presence of viscous dissipation and non-uniform heat source parameter. The resulting governing equations are converted into a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations by applying a suitable similarity transformation and then solved numerically using Keller-Box technique. The effect of different flow parameters on velocity, temperature and concentration profiles are presented in both graphical and tabular forms. Numerical values of local skin-friction coefficient, local Nusselt number and Sherwood number are tabulated. It is found that the velocity decreases and the temperature & concentration are increases with increase of velocity slip parameter.
