Abstract
The present work emphasizes the significance of oscillatory mixed convection stratified fluid and heat transfer characteristics at different stations of non-conducting horizontally circular cylinder in the presence of thermally stratified medium. To remove the difficulties in illustrating the coupled PDE’s, the finite-difference scheme with efficient primitive-variable formulation is proposed to transform dimensionless equations. The numerical simulations of coupled non-dimensional equations are computed in terms velocity of fluid, temperature and magnetic field which are computed to examine the fluctuating components of skin friction, heat transfer and current density for various emerging parameters. The governing parameters namely, thermally stratification parameter
