Unsteady flow of CNT-water nanofluid past a stretching sheet with slip effect

Chaudhary, Santosh


In this analysis, an unsteady flow over a stretching plate with slip effect in CNT-water nanofluid is examined. A set of ordinary differential equations is obtained by applying the convenient similarity variables. Perturbation technique is used to find numerical solutions of the study by applying Runge-Kutta fourth order scheme. Plots of velocity and temperature distributions for physical parameters such as velocity slip parameter, solid volume fraction, unsteadiness parameter and thermal slip parameter are given via graphs, whereas numerical values of local skin friction coefficient and local Nusselt number are presented in tabular form. Comparison with earlier published results specified that Runge-Kutta method of order four is applicable to solve this problem.
