Abstract

This article looks at the mixed convection flow of an Oldroyd-B fluid bounded by a porous stretching surface. Mathematical formulation is developed in the presence of heat source and power law heat flux. Velocity and temperature are computed. Plots for different parameters are analyzed. Numerical values of skin friction coefficient are examined.
