Modeling of Viscoelastic Fluid Flow Past a Non-linearly Stretching Surface with Convective Heat Transfer: OHAM Analysis

The intention behind carrying out this research problem is to understand the nature of two-dimensional hydromagnetic flow of an electro-conductive and thermally radiating viscoelastic fluid past a non-linear stretching surface, considering viscous and Joule dissipation. With a perspective of converting the governing PDEs into a system of ODEs, appropriate similarity transformation has been incorporated. Optimal Homotopy Analysis Method (OHAM) is used for solving the converted non-linear and coupled equations. Impact of several regulatory flow parameters on temperature, velocity and species concentration are explained via graphs while the variation of some engineering quantities such as Nusselt number, skin friction coefficient and Sherwood number are shown by tables. One of the major outcomes of this investigation is that velocity is getting decreased by viscoelastic parameter whereas the convective heat transfer condition enhances the fluid temperature.
