Abstract

The boundary layer phenomena for Sisko-nano fluid flow is being observed with the effect of MHD and thermal radiation on a non-linear stretched surface. For developing a fundamental flow model, a boundary layer approximation is done, which represents time subservient momentum, concentration and energy equations. By taking the assistance of Compaq Visual Fortran, the fundamental equations are analysed by imposing a finite difference scheme explicitly. A stability and convergence study is also exhibited, and the ongoing investigation is found converged for Lewis number, Le≥0.161 and Prandtl number, Pr≥0.668. The impression of Sisko fluid parameter (A1, A2) along with diversified appropriate parameters is depicted in various flow fields. However, the developed visualisation of fluid flow is also depicted through streamlines and isotherms.
