Mixed Convection in MHD Flow and Heat Transfer Rate Near a Stagnation-Point on a Non-Linear Vertical Stretching Sheet

Abstract

This work investigates the mixed convection in a Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow and heat transfer rate near a stagnation-point region over a nonlinear vertical stretching sheet. Using a similarity transformation, the governing equations are transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations which are solved numerically using the fourth order Runge-Kutta method with shooting technique. The influence of pertinent flow parameters on velocity, temperature, surface drag force and heat transfer rate are computed and analyzed. Graphical and tabular results are given to examine the nature of the problem. The heat transfer rate at the surface increases with the mixed convection.
