MHD boundary layer slip flow of a casson fluid over an exponentially stretching surface in the presence of thermal radiation and chemical reaction
An analysis is carried out to investigate the steady two-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic boundary layer flow of a Casson fluid over an exponentially stretching surface in the presence of thermal radiation and chemical reaction. Velocity, thermal and solutal slips are considered instead of no-slip conditions at the boundary. Stretching velocity, wall temperature and wall concentration are considered in the exponential forms. The non-linear partial differential equations are converted into a system of non-linear ordinary differential equations by similarity transformations. The resultant non-linear ordinary differential equations are solved numerically by fourth order Runge-Kutta method along with shooting technique. The influence of various parameters on the fluid velocity, temperature, concentration, wall skin friction coefficient, the heat transfer coefficient and the Sherwood number have been computed and the results are presented graphically and discussed quantitatively. Comparisons with previously published works are performed on various special cases and are found to be in excellent agreement.
