Abstract

In this paper, we use the modified decomposition method (MDM) to solve the unsteady flow of a nanofluid squeezing between two parallel equations. Copper as nanoparticle with water as its base fluid has considered. The effective thermal conductivity and viscosity of nanofluid are calculated by the Maxwell- Garnetts (MG) and Brinkman models, respectively. The effects of the squeeze number, the nanofluid volume fraction, Eckert number, δ on Nusselt number and the Prandtl number are investigated. The figures and tables clearly show high accuracy of the method to solve the unsteady flow.
