Abstract

An analysis is presented to study the free convective unsteady magnatohydrodynamic boundary layer flow of a Nano fluid over a permeable shrinking sheet in the presence of nth order chemical reaction. Magnetic field of varying strength is applied normal to the sheet. The Nano fluid model under consideration includes Brownian motion, thermophoresis effects and nth order chemical reaction. The governing partial differential equations are transformed into a set of ordinary differential equations by applying the local similarity transformations and then the highly coupled nonlinear differential equations are solved by the method of lines. The effect of various controlling flow parameters on the dimensionless velocity, temperature and nanoparticle volume fraction profiles are analyzed.
