Abstract

The magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) mixed convection heat transfer in a non-Newtonian Powell-Erying fluid flow due to an exponentially shrinking porous sheet is investigated. Both assisting and opposing flows are considered. After use of the suitable transformations, the governing equations become non-similar ODEs. Numerical computations of resulting equations are obtained by very efficient shooting method for several values of involved parameters. The results exhibit that dual non-similar solutions can be found only when some amount of fluid mass is sucked from the flow field through the porous sheet. Many important results on the effect of external magnetic field on mixed convective flow of Powell-Erying fluid have been explored. Where, it is found that dual non-similar solutions exist for the opposing flow, while for the assisting flow, solution is unique and for steady Powell-Erying fluid flow stronger mass suction is required compared to the Newtonian fluid flow.
