UNSTEADY RADIATIVE-CONVECTIVE BOUNDARY-LAYER FLOW OF A CASSON FLUID WITH VARIABLE THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY


The unsteady two-dimensional flow of a non-Newtonian fluid over a stretching surface with the effects of thermal radiation and variable thermal conductivity is investigated. The Casson fluid model is used to characterize the non- Newtonian fluid behavior. First, using a similarity transformation, the governing time-dependent partial differential equations are transformed into coupled nonlinear ordinary differential equations with variable coefficients. Then the transformed equations are solved numerically under appropriate boundary conditions by the shooting method. An exact solution corresponding to the momentum equation for a steady case is found. The obtained numerical results are analyzed as to the effect of the pertinent parameters on the flow and heat transfer characteristics.
