Abstract

Numerical analysis of computational modeling is performed to investigate the influence of partial slip on boundary layer flow of electrically conducting incompressible viscous fluid over exponential stretching surface in the presence of thermal radiation. The impact of defining parameters are determined and governing boundary layer equations are reduced to ordinary differential equations by using appropriate similarity transformation. Numerical computation of the problem has been carried out by Runge-Kutta fourth order method in association with quasilinear shooting technique. Effects of magnetic parameter, radiation parameter, Prandtl number, suction or injection parameter, velocity slip parameter and thermal slip parameter on velocity and temperature profiles are computed and illustrated graphically, whereas numerical values of local skin friction coefficient and local Nusselt number are expressed through tabular arrays. Results for non-magnetic flow condition are found in concordance with earlier investigations.
