Abstract

Unsteady laminar boundary-layer flows of a nanofluid past a stretching sheet with thermal radiation in the presence of magnetic field have been studied numerically. The non-similar momentum, energy and concentration equations have been obtained by using non-dimensional variables. The non-similar equations are presented here which depends on the useful parameters of the model. The obtained equations have been solved by explicit finite difference method with stability and convergence analysis. The velocity, temperature and nanoparticles volume fraction profiles as well as the average Shear stress, Nusselt number and Sherwood number at the sheet are discussed for the different values of important parameters with different time steps.
