Slip effects on boundary layer stagnation-point flow and heat transfer towards a shrinking sheet. (English) Zbl 1205.80012

Summary: We analyze the effects of partial slip on steady boundary layer stagnation-point flow of an incompressible fluid and heat transfer towards a shrinking sheet. Similarity transformation technique is adopted to obtain the self-similar ordinary differential equations and then the self-similar equations are solved numerically using shooting method. This investigation explores the conditions of the non-existence, existence, uniqueness and duality of the solutions of self-similar equations numerically. Due to the increase of slip parameter \((\delta )\), the range of velocity ratio parameter \((c/a)\) where the similarity solution exists, increases.
