Abstract


In the present paper magneto hydrodynamic flow of an MHD power law fluid over a porous stretching sheet is studied by applying exact analytical similarity transformation technique. The flow is caused by linear stretching of a sheet from a permeable wall. The momentum equation is simplified by converting the governing momentum boundary layer partial differential equation into ordinary differential equation by using classical similarity transformation technique with appropriate boundary conditions.


Keywords


Stretching sheet, boundary layer thickness, power law fluid, displacement thickness, permeability.
