Abstract

In this paper, similarity solution of the steady boundary layer flow and heat transfer of a Casson nanofluid flowing over a vertical cylinder which is stretching exponentially along its radial direction in the presence of MHD and Newtonian heating is investigated. The governing partial differential equations are converted into nonlinear, ordinary, and coupled differential equations and are solved using bvp4c Matlab solver. The effects of important parameters such as Magnetic parameter, Reynolds number, Prandtl number, Lewis number. Natural convection parameter and the conjugate parameter for Newtonian heating are described through graphs. The numerical results are compared with the published data and are found to be in good agreement.”.
