Abstract

In this article, a numerical investigation of magnetohydrodynamic non-Newtonian nanofluid flow on a stretching sheet through an isotropic porous medium. The effects of both non-linear thermal radiation and heat generation/absorption were studied on distributions of velocity, temperature and concentration. On the other side, the governing partial differential equations have been transformed by using suitable similarity transformations into a system of ordinary differential equations and then solved, numerically by using the fourth order Runge-Kutta method with shooting technique. The principal findings of the study showed up that the effect of both Darcy number and magnetic field on the velocity profile is decreasing, while the impacts of both non-linear thermal radiation and heat source/skin on temperature are increasing and decreasing on concentration distribution respectively. Numerical solutions were calculated for the skin fraction, local Nusselt number and local Sherwood number for values of all important physical parameters.
