Viscous flow and heat transfer over a nonlinearly stretching sheet. (English) Zbl 1112.76022
Summary: This paper presents a numerical analysis of flow and heat transfer in a viscous fluid over a nonlinear stretching sheet by employing a novel numerical procedure, and two cases are studied: (i) the sheet with constant surface temperature, and (ii) the sheet with prescribed surface temperature. The governing partial differential equations are converted into highly nonlinear ordinary differential equations by a similarity transformation. The variations of dimensionless surface temperature and its gradient as well as flow and heat transfer characteristics are graphed and tabulated.
