Influence of Porosity and Magnetic Field with Dissipative Heat Transfer Flow over a Stretching Surface through UCM Fluid

N. Raveendra


The purpose of present analysis is to examine the effects of transverse magnetic field within a boundary layer of an upper-Convected Maxwell (UCM) fluid over a stretching surface through porous media. The requisite partial differential equations are converted into ordinary differential equations by using similarity transformations. Resultant equations are highly non-linear which cannot be solved analytically. Hence those equations are solved numerically by using efficient numerical shooting technique with fourth order Runge-Kutta method. The main aim of the present work is to analyze the effect of elastic parameter β, magnetic parameter Mn and thermal conductivity k2 on the temperature field above the sheet. The previous results are compared with our present results and are shown in tabulation and represented graphically

Keywords: Upper-Convected Maxwell fluid, Boundary layer, Stretching surface, Similarity transformation, Magnetic parameter, Porous media, Viscous dissipation.
