Abstract


In this chapter we have studied flow and heat transfer characteristics of Non-Newtonian casson fluid over an inclined stretching sheet. The governing equations which are derived from the Navier- Stokes equations of motion and Prandtle boundary layer concept respectively. The governing equations of motion and heat transfer are basically Non-linear partial differential equations which are difficult to solve, hence we have converted these partial differential equations into Non-linear ordinary differential equations by using suitable Non-dimensionalization with respective boundary conditions. These ordinary differential equations are solved numerically using Ranga-Kutta fourth order method with an efficient shooting technique. Using the drawn graph, we have discussed the results of the present study. Numerical values of skin friction and Nusselt numbers are calculated and tabulated. Our results are in good agreement with the earlier published data for some limiting conditions
