ABSTRACT

A numerical study on boundary layer flow behaviour, heat and mass transfer characteristics of a nanofluid over an exponentially stretching sheet in a porous medium is presented in this paper. The sheet is assumed to be permeable. The governing partial differential equations are transformed into coupled nonlinear ordinary differential equations by using suitable similarity transformations. The transformed equations are then solved numerically using the well known explicit finite difference scheme known as the Keller Box method. A detailed parametric study is performed to access the influence of the physical parameters on longitudinal velocity, temperature and nanoparticle volume fraction profiles as well as the local skin-friction coefficient, local Nusselt number and the local Sherwood number and then, the results are presented in both graphical and tabular forms.
