Abstract

This study perform an accurate numerical analysis of axisymmetric flow and heat transfer of an electrically conducting fluid over a radially stretching surface. The flow phenomena occurs due to stretching of surface along radial direction with exponential velocity. The governing highly nonlinear partial differential equations are transformed into ordinary differential equations by invoking new similarity transformations. Numerical analysis for flow behavior is performed using Shooting technique. The velocity and thermal profiles are shown for various values of dimensionless physical parameters and discussed in detail. Further skin friction coefficient and nusselt number are tabulated and examined for various values of pertinent parameters.
