Abstract

In this paper, two-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow of Casson fluid over a fixed plate under non-uniform heat source/sink and Joule heating is analyzed by the homotopy analysis method (HAM). The governing boundary-layer equations have been reduced to the ordinary differential equations (ODEs) through the similarity variables. The current HAM-series solution is compared and successfully validated by the previous studies. Furthermore, the effects of thermo-physical parameters on the current solution are precisely examined. It is found that the skin friction coefficient and local Nusselt number are greatly affected by the Hartmann number. It can be concluded that employing the Casson fluid together with the suction effect can minimize the rate of heat and mass transfer.
