Lie Group Analysis on Boundary Layer Flow of Nanofluid over a Stretching Sheet with Thermal Radiation

A. K. Pandey, Manoj Kumar, Khilap Singh

Abstract


This present paper deals with the study of effect of thermal radiation on steady flow of a nano-fluid past a stretching surface with chemical reaction. The transport equations along with boundary conditions converted into dimensionless form then transformed into a set of coupled ordinary differential equations using similarity transformation generated by Lie group transformations. The physical significance of interesting parameters on the velocity, temperature and concentration profile as well as the local skin friction coefficient, Nusselt number and Sherwood number are thoroughly examined
