MHD boundary-layer flow of tangent hyperbolic nanofluid over a Stretching Cylinder
Keywords:Tangent hyperbolic nanofluid, Stretching cylinder, MHD, Boundary layer, Shooting method.
The main objective of the current study is to analyze the effect of magnetic field on tangent hyperbolic nanofluid over a stretching cylinder. The model used for tangent hyperbolic nanofluid includes the effect of Brownian motion and thermophoresis. The solution depends on eight parameters viz. curvature parameter, power law index , weissenberg number , Lewis number , Prandtl number , Brownian motion thermophoresis parameter and magnetic parameter . Similarity transformation is used to convert the partial differential equations into ordinary differential equations. For numerical solution of the model Runge-Kutta- method is used. The effects of variation in physical parameters on velocity, temperature and concentration distribution, as well as on the skin friction coefficient, local Nusselt number and Sherwood number are presented in tabular and graphical form.
