An optimal analysis of radiated nanomaterial flow with viscous dissipation and heat source
The present work explores the analytical study of nanofluid flow above a stretching medium with the heat source and viscous dissipation. Additional radiative effects are also incorporated. The main physical problem is offered and changed into an arrangement of combined nonlinear differential equations with appropriate transformations. Optimal homotopy analysis method is used to attain the analytical solutions of the set of nonlinear differential equations. Important predictions of the flow phenomena are explored and deliberated by means of graphs and numerical tables. Moreover, the accurateness of the existing findings is verified by equating them with the previously available work.
