EFFECTS OF RADIATION AND VISCOUS DISSIPATION ON MHD BOUNDARY LAYER FLOW DUE TO AN EXPONENTIALLY MOVING STRETCHING SHEET IN POROUS MEDIUM

Rajendra Singh Yadav, P.R. Sharma

Abstract


Aim of the paper is to investigate radiation effects on the MHD flow over an exponentially moving stretching sheet placed in a porous medium. A variable magnetic field is applied normal to the sheet. Similarity transformation is used to convert the governing nonlinear partial differential equations into a system of ordinary differential equations which are solved numerically using forth order Runge- Kutta integration scheme with shooting iteration technique. The effects of physical parameters on the dimensionless velocity and temperature profiles are depicted graphically and analyzed in details. Finally numerical values of physical quantities, such as the local skin friction coefficient and the local Nusselt number are presented in the tabular form.
