Abstract

The effect of non-linear thermal radiation on nanofluid flow over a riga plate is studied. Under some conditions, our problem reduces to the Blasius problem and Sakiadis problem. Similarity transformation is used to convert the governing steady Navier-Stokes equations into a system of coupled nonlinear differential equations, which are then solved numerically via Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg 45 order method along with a shooting method. Influence of parameters involved on velocity, temperature and concentration profiles is discussed with the help of graphical aid. Numerical results have been presented on the skin-friction coefficients, local Nusselt number and Sherwood number. It is found that in skin friction values of Blasius flow is higher than skin friction values of Sakiadis flow.
