A mathematical and computational framework for MHD and heat source effect on nanofluid flow by a nonlinearly stretching sheet

The present study intends to elaborate on the heat generation/absorption of two-dimensional laminar nanofluid flow in view of the nonlinear stretching surface at a given surface temperature with partial slip effect. The influence of Joule heating and viscous dissipation are considered. For evolving mathematical formulation, a fundamental flow model based on boundary layer theory is done, which signifies mass conservation of momentum, energy, and concentration equations. The fundamental nonlinear PDEs are diminished to a couple of nonlinear ODEs by implementing the transformation technique. The famous bvp4c scheme is employed for nonlinear computation. Stability and convergence have been determined by comparing the results with the homotopic method. Accomplished numerical outcomes are portrayed via plotted graphs in order to witness further insight into the flow pattern. For the numerical verification, some comparisons are also shown with homotopic technique and acceptable agreement is perceived.
