Flow and Heat Transfer In a Power-law Fluid with Variable Conductivity over a Stretching Sheet

Flow and Heat Transfer In a Power-law Fluid with Variable Conductivity over a Stretching Sheet

Abstract —The steady, laminar incompressible MHD stagnation-point flows and heat transfer with variable conductivity of a Non-Newtonian Fluid over a stretching sheets are analyzed for three cases of heating conditions, namely, (i)the sheet with the con- stant surface temperature; (ii) the sheet with the pre- scribed surface temperature; (iii) surface temperature with the prescribed surface heat flux. The governing system of partial differential equations is first trans- formed into a system of dimensionless ordinary dif- ferential equations. The numerical solutions are pre- sented to illustrate the influence of the various values of the ratio of free stream velocity and stretching ve- locity, the magnetic field parameter, Prandtl number, the wall temperature exponent and the power-law in- dex. These effects of the different parameters on the velocity and temperature as well as the skin friction and wall heat transfer are presented in tables and graphically. The results are found to be in good agre- ment with those of earlier investigations reported in existing scientific literatures.

Ferromagnetic Liquid Flow due to Gravity-Aligned Stretching of an Elastic Sheet

Ferromagnetic Liquid Flow due to Gravity-Aligned Stretching of an Elastic Sheet

The combined influence of thermal and magnetic field gradients on the saturated ferrofluid flowing along a flat plate was investigated by NeuringerJ.L. (1966). The flow of a viscous fluid past a linearly stretching surface was considered by Crane L.J. (1970) for a Newtonian fluid. Andersson and Valnes (1998) extended Crane’s problem by studying the influence of the magnetic field, due to a magnetic dipole, on a shear driven motion (flow over a stretching sheet) of a viscous non-conducting ferrofluid. It was concluded that the primary effect of the magnetic field was to decelerate the fluid motion as compared to the hydrodynamic case. At the present time there are enumerable papers on the stretching sheet problem using different continua and considering various effects such as non-Newtonian characteristics, radiation, and magnetic field and so on. The above discussions can be found in Abel et al. 2008, 2009a, 2009b, 2009c, 2009d, 2011; Andersson 1998, 1992, 2006; Cortell 2010, 2008, 2007a, 2007b, 2006; Dandapat 2011, 2010, 2007; Dulal Pal 2010a, 2010b; Siddheshwar and Mahabaleshwar 2005; Hayat et al. 2010a, 2010b; Abbas et al.2010; Wang C.Y. 2007; Hamad 2007; Arnold et al. 2010; Seddeek 2007; Prasad et al. 2010; Magyari and Keller 2006; Van Gorder and Vajravelu 2010; Vajravelu and Cannon 2006; Abdoul and Ghotbi 2009; Tzirtzilakis and Kafoussias 2003 and the references there in. In many of the physical situation the sheet may be stretched vertically, rather than horizontally, into the ambient liquid. In this case the liquid flow and the heat transfer characteristics are determined by the motion of the stretching sheet and the buoyant force. There are no studies in literature concerning the flow and heat transfer in a ferrofluid due to a vertical stretching sheet in the presence of external magnetic field. This paper aims at studying the same using two different types of boundary heating, namely, prescribed surface temperature (PST) and prescribed surface heat flux (PHF). Shooting method based on Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg and Newton Raphson schemes is used in arriving at the numerical solution of the proposed problem.

Invariance analysis and similarity solution of heat transfer for MHD viscous power-law fluid over a non-linear porous surface via group theory

In recent years several industries deal with the Non-Newtonian fluids under the influence of magnetic field. In view of this, some researchers [Sarpakaya (1961), Saponkov (1967), Martinson and Pavlov (1971), Samokhen (1987), Andersson et. al (1992), Cortell (2005a), Liao (2005)] have presented works on MHD flow and heat transfer in an electrically conducting power law fluid over a stretching sheet. Motivated by this, we produce similarity analysis via deductive group method based on general group transformation is, probably first time, to derive symmetry group and similarity solutions for boundary layer flow of an electrically conducting power-law fluid over non-linear surface. The aim of the present work is twofold: first to derive systematically the similarity transformation using general group theoretic method under similarity requirement for the governing equations, secondly to incorporate the effects of applied magnetic field for an electrically conducting fluid and to carry out the heat transfer analysis.

Soret-Dufour Effects on Hydromagnetic Non-Darcy Convective-Radiative Heat and Mass Transfer over a Stretching Sheet in Porous Medium with Viscous Dissipation and Ohmic Heating

A new dimension is added to the study of flow and heat transfer in a viscous fluid over a stretching surface in the presence of thermal radiation. The radiative effects have important applications in physics and engineering particularly in space technology and high temperature processes. Thermal radiation effect might play a significant role in controlling heat transfer process in polymer processing industry. Bakier and Gorla (1996) investigated the effect of thermal radiation on mixed convection from horizontal surfaces in saturated porous media.The quality of the final product depends to a great extent on the heat controlling factors and the knowledge of radiative heat transfer in the system can perhaps lead to a desired product with a sought characteristic. Pal and Malashetty (2008) have presented similarity solutions of the boundary layer equations to analyze the effects of thermal radiation on stagnation point flow over a stretching sheet with internal heat

Unsteady Hydromagnetic Flow of a Heat Absorbing Dusty Fluid Past a Permeable Vertical Plate with Ramped Temperature

486 transfer. Afify (2009) discussed the MHD free convective heat and mass transfer flow over a stretching sheet in the presence of suction/injection with thermal diffusion and diffusion thermo effects. The influence of dust particles on the flow of a viscous fluid has several important applications. The dust particles tend to retard the flow and to decrease the fluid temperature. Such flows are encountered in a wide variety of engineering problem such as nuclear reactor cooling, rain erosion, paint spraying, transport, waste water treatment, combustion, etc. The presence of solid particles such as ash or soot in combustion energy generators and their effect on performance of such devices led to studies of particulate suspension in electrically conducting fluid in the presence of magnetic field. Saffman (1962) initiated the study of dusty fluids and discussed the stability of the laminar flow of a dusty gas in which the dust particles are uniformly distributed Chamkha (2000b) investigated the unsteady laminar hydromagnetic fluid particle flow and heat transfer in channels and circular pipes considering two phase continuum models. The effects of Hall current on the Couette flow with heat transfer of a dusty conducting fluid in the presence of uniform suction/injection was studied by Attia (2005). Ghosh and Ghosh (2008) considered the problem of hydromagnetic rotating flow of a dusty fluid near a pulsating plate when the flow is generated in the fluid particle system due to velocity tooth pulses subjected on the plate in the presence of a transverse magnetic field. Makinde and Chinyoka (2010) investigated the unsteady fluid flow and heat transfer of a dusty fluid between two parallel plates with variable viscosity and thermal conductivity

Analytical solution to convection-radiation of a continuously moving fin with temperature-dependent thermal conductivity

Cortell [3] studied heat transfer in a moving fluid over a moving surface numerically by means of a fourth-order Rung-Kutta method. Ephraim and Abraham [4] investigated the streamwise variation of the temperature of a moving sheet in the presence of moving fluid. They applied an iterative method for solving boundary layer equations. Their solution does not de- pend on the properties of sheet and fluid. Ming et al. [5] studied conjugate heat transfer from a continuous, moving flat plate numerically by employing the cubic spline collocation. They in- vestigated effects of Prandtl number, the convection-conduction parameters and the Peclet num- ber on the heat transfer from a continuous, moving plate. The investigation of mixed convection heat transfer along a continuously moving heated vertical plate with suction and blowing was carried out by Al-Sanea [6]. He applied the finite volume method to solve boundary layer equa- tions. He used the published results available under special condition to validate numerical data, and the comparison indicated an excellent agreement. The buoyancy force and thermal radiation effects in magnetohydodynamics (MHD) boundary layer visco-elastic fluid flow over continu- ously moving surface were performed by Abel et al. [7]. Lee and Tsai [8] studied cooling of a continuous moving sheet of finite thickness. The effect of the buoyancy force is also taken into account. They obtained the temperature distribution along the solid-fluid interface by solving numerically a conjugate heat transfer problem that consists of heat conduction inside the sheet and induced mixed convection adjacent to the sheet surface. Other conjugate convection-con- duction researches have been presented by Choudhry and Jaluria [9], and Mendez and Trevino [10], among others. The heat transfer of a moving material in a non-Newtonian fluid was first studied by Fox et al. [11]. They applied an exact solution for boundary layer equations. Howell et al. [12] studied heat transfer on a continuous moving plate in non-Newtonian power law fluid. They applied Merk-Chao series expansion to generate ordinary differential equation from the partial differential momentum and heat transfer equations in order to obtain universal velocity and temperature functions. Torabi et al. [13] investigated convective-radiative non-Fourier heat conduction with variable coefficients by employing homotopy perturbation method (HPM) Some of the other studies that investigated the heat transfer of a continuous moving material in power law fluid have been reported by Sahu et al. [14] and, Zheng and Zhang [15].

Boundary layer Slip Flow and Heat Transfer of Nanofluid Induced by a Permeable Stretching Sheet with Convective Boundary Condition

Boundary layer Slip Flow and Heat Transfer of Nanofluid Induced by a Permeable Stretching Sheet with Convective Boundary Condition

blowing, continuous casting of metals, and spinning of fibers also involve the flow over a stretching surface. During the manufacturing process of these sheets, the mixture issued from a slot is stretched to reach the desired thickness. At last, in view of acquiring the top-grade final product, this sheet solidifies as it passes through the air/water-cooled systems. In water cooling systems, inclusion of nanoparticles can enhance the cooling process efficiency and can also reduce the transient time. There is a vast literature on the boundary layer flow over a stretching sheet, but we only refer to few recent studies Ziabakhsh et al. (2010), Hassani et al. (2011), Hayat et al. (2011), Postelnicu and Pop (2011), Malvandi et al. (2013), Malvandi et al. (2013), Reddy (2013). All these investigations employ no-slip condition at the boundary. However, the non-adherence of the fluid to a solid boundary at the presence of nanoparticles, known as slip velocity condition, has been reported by numerous researchers Abbas et al. (2008), Hayat et al. (2008), Hamad et al. (2012), Noghrehabadi et al. (2012), Malvandi et al. (2014), Sharma et al. (2014).

Effects of Soret and Non-Uniform Heat Source on MHD Non-Darcian Convective Flow over a Stretching Sheet in a Dissipative Micropolar Fluid with Radiation

Heat and mass transfer past over a stretching sheet is an excellent study in industrial applications such as glass fiber production, hot rolling and wire drawing, the aerodynamic extrusion of plastic sheets, glass blowing, metal spinning and drawing plastic films under different heating processes. The quality of the final product depends on the rate of heat transfer at the stretching surface. A comprehensive study on boundary layer flow caused by the stretching of an elastic flat sheet was studied by McCormack and Crane (1973). Crane (1970) investigated the flow caused by a stretching plate. Many authors such as Gupta and Gupta (1977); Chen and Char (1988); Dutta et al. (1985) extended the study of Crane (1970) by including the effects of heat and mass transfer under various situations.

Convective Flow of Sisko Fluid over a Bidirectional Stretching Surface.

Convective Flow of Sisko Fluid over a Bidirectional Stretching Surface.

The phenomena of momentum and heat transfer in boundary layer flow over a flat heated sur- face are experienced widely in industrial engineering applications. The momentum and heat transfer due to a heated stretching surface have gained considerable attention because of their practical importance in diverse engineering disciplines. Plastic and rubber sheets are manufac- tured by this process, where it is often necessary to blow a gaseous medium through the not yet solidified material. Further example that belongs to the above class of problems is the cooling of a large metallic plate in a bath, which may be an electrolytic [1]. The quality of finished product is strongly dependent upon the final cooling of the product. Various aspects of such problems, including unidirectional and bidirectional stretching surface, have been the focal point of many theoretical researchers. Some previous works regarding bidirectional stretching surface was carried out by Wang [2], who presented exact similar solutions for a three- dimensional flow due to stretching of sheet in two lateral directions. Later on, Ariel [3] addressed this problem by finding the approximate analytical solutions using the homotopy perturbation method. Liu and Andersson [4] also explored numerically the heat transfer char- acteristics of fluid, when the sheet is stretched in two lateral directions with variable thermal

Mixed Convection Flow of Casson Nanofluid over a Stretching Sheet with Convectively Heated Chemical Reaction and Heat Source/Sink

Mixed Convection Flow of Casson Nanofluid over a Stretching Sheet with Convectively Heated Chemical Reaction and Heat Source/Sink

Now a days, the energy efficiency is an extremely important topic in view of thermal conductivity enhancement amongst the researchers. For this purpose the researchers considered the involvement of nanoparticles in the base fluid. Originally Masuda et al. (1996) reported the liquid dispersions of submicron particles or nanoparticles. After that, first time nanofluid term is used by Choi (1995). In comparison to the base fluids, thermal conductivity of nanofluid is too high that's why these have been used in many energetic systems such as cooling of nuclear systems, radiators, natural convection in enclosures etc. The model proposed by Buongiorno (2006) studies the Brownian motion and the thermophoresis on the heat transfer characteristics. Recently, the analytical solutions for the laminar axisymmetric mixed convection boundary layer nanofluid flow past a vertical cylinder is obtained by Rashidi et al. (2012a). Stagnation point flow of nanofluid near a permeable stretched surface with thermal convective condition is provided by Alseadi et al. (2012). Mustafa et al. (2013) discussed the boundary layer flow of nanofluid over an exponentially stretching sheet with convective boundary conditions. Rashidi et al. (2014b) presented the analytical solutions of transport phenomena in nanofluid adjacent to a nonlinearly porous stretching sheet. Sheikholeslami and Ganji (2013a) studied the heat transfer of Cu-water nanofluid flow between the parallel plates. Turkyilmazoglu (2013) studied the unsteady mixed convection flow of nanofluids over a moving vertical flat plate with heat transfer. Sheikholeslami et al. (2013b) determined free convection flow of nanofluid. Hayat et al. (2014) presented the mixed convection peristaltic flow of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) nanofluid in presence of Brownian motion and thermophoresis. Casson fluid model is one of the base fluids which exhibits yield stress. However such fluid behaves like a solid when shear stress less than the yield stress is applied and it moves if applied shear stress is greater than yield stress. Examples of Casson fluid include jelly, soup, honey, tomato sauce, concentrated fruit juices, blood and many others. In fact several substances like protein, fibrinogen and globin in an aqueous base plasma, human red cells form a chain like structure, known as aggregates or rouleaux. If the rouleaux behaves like a plastic solid then there exists a field stress that can be identified with the constant yield stress in Casson fluid by Dash et al. (1996). Recently, Mukhopadhyay (2013a) provided the boundary layer flow of Casson fluid over a non-linearly stretching sheet. Some of the recent studies about flow of Casson fluid are [Shehzad et al. (2013), Mukhopadhyay and Vajravelu (2013b), Hayat et al. (2012a)].

Stretching sheet flows are of great importance in many engineering applica- tions like extrusion of a polymer sheet from the die, the boundary layer in liquid film condensation processes, emulsion coating on photographic films, etc. Sakiadis (1961) initiated the study of boundary layer flows over a continuous surface and formulated the two dimensional boundary layer equations. Tsou et al. (1967) extended the work of Sakiadis and considered the heat transfer in the boundary layer flow over a continuous surface and experimentally verified Sakiadis’ results. Erickson et al.

MHD Unsteady Flow and Heat Transfer of Micropolar Fluid through Porous Channel with Expanding or Contracting Walls

MHD Unsteady Flow and Heat Transfer of Micropolar Fluid through Porous Channel with Expanding or Contracting Walls

There are many fluids which are important from the industrial point of view, and display non-Newtonian behavior. Due to the complexity of such fluids, several models have been proposed but the micropolar model has been found to be the most appropriate one. It has been experimentally predicted that the fluids which could not be characterized by Newtonian relationships, indicated significant reduction in shear stress near a rigid body. The micropolar model has been successful in explaining such behaviors of the non-Newtonian fluids. Since its introduction, the micropolar fluid has been a hot area of research, and therefore many investigators have studied the related flow and heat transfer problems in different geometries. For example, natural convection heat transfer between two differentially heated concentric isothermal spheres utilizing micropolar fluid has been numerically investigated by Khoshab and Dehghan, (2011). Govardhan and Kishan (2011) studied the MHD effects on the unsteady boundary layer flow of an incompressible micropolar fluid over a stretching sheet when the sheet was stretched in its own plane. Ashmawy (2014) considered the problem of fully developed natural convective micropolar fluid flow in a vertical channel, under the slip boundary conditions for fluid velocity.

Numerical investigation of slip flow effects on unsteady hydromagnetic flow over a stretching surface with thermal radiation

The technological application of the hydromagnetic flow with slip flow effects has become the centre of attraction of many scientists, engineers and researchers. Beaver and Joseph [17] proposed a slip flow condition at the boundary. Of late, there has been a revival of interest in the flow problems with partial slip. Martin et al. [18] presented the Blasius boundary layer solution with slip flow conditions. Wang [19] undertook the study of the flow of a Newtonian fluid past a stretching sheet with partial slip and purportedly gave an exact solution. Slip flow past a stretching surface was analysed by Andersson [20]. Martin et al. [21] analysed the momentum and heat transfer in a laminar boundary with slip flow. Wang [22] carried out the stagnation slip flow and heat transfer on a moving plate. Matthews et al. [23] gave a note on the boundary layer equations with linear slip boundary conditions. Abbas et al. [24] analysed the slip effects and heat transfer effects of a viscous fluid over an oscillatory stretching surface. Fang et al. [25] gave an exact solution of the slip MHD viscous flow over a stretching sheet. Wang [26] carried out an analysis of viscous flow due to a stretching sheet with surface slip and suction. Recently, the effects of slip conditions on stretching flow with ohmic dissipation and thermal radiation was given by Qasim [27].

Unsteady MHD flow and heat transfer of nanofluid over a permeable shrinking sheet with thermal radiation and chemical reaction

Unsteady MHD flow and heat transfer of nanofluid over a permeable shrinking sheet with thermal radiation and chemical reaction

It is interesting to note that the Brownian motion of nanoparticles at molecular and nanoscale levels are a key nanoscale mechanism governing their thermal behaviors. In nanofluid systems, due to the size of the nanoparticles, the Brownian motion takes place, which can affect the heat transfer properties. As the particle size scale approaches to the nanometer scale, the particle Brownian motion and its effect on the surrounding liquids play an important role in the heat transfer. In view of these applications, Nield and Kuznetsov ([22, 23]) analyzed the free convective boundary layer flows in a porous medium saturated by nanofluid by taking Brownian motion and thermophoresis effects into consideration. In the first article, the authors have assumed that nanoparticles are suspended in the nanofluid using either surfactant or surface charge technology and hence they have concluded that this prevents particles from agglomeration and deposition on the porous matrix. Chamkha et al. [24] carried out a boundary layer analysis for the natural convection past an isothermal sphere in a Darcy porous medium saturated with a nanofluid. Nield and Kuznetsov [25] investigated the cross-diffusion in nanofluids, with the aim of making a detailed comparison with regular cross diffusion effects and the cross- diffusion effects peculiar to nanofluids, and at the same time investigating the interaction between these effects when the base fluid of the nanofluid is itself a binary fluid such as salty water. Recently, a boundary layer analysis for the natural convection past a horizontal plate in a porous medium saturated with a nanofluid is analyzed by Gorla and Chamkha [26], N. Kishan et.al [27], studied the unsteady MHD flow of heat and mass transfer of Cu-water and TiO 2 -water nanofluids over stretching sheet with a non-uniform heat/source/sink

Cortell [6] examined the flow and heat transfer of an electrically conducting second grade fluid in the presence of transverse magnetic field past a semi-infinite stretching sheet. Sweet et al.

Further, Robert and Vajravelu [8] obtained explicit exact solutions for fourth-order nonlinear differential equations arising in the hydromagnetic flow of a second grade fluid over a stretching or shrinking sheet. Recently, Abbasbandy et al. [9] obtained both numerical and analytical solutions for Falkner-Skan flow of MHD Maxwell fluid and emphasized the variations of viscoelastic and magnetic parameters. Many researchers have made the valuable contribution to the literature of hydromagnetic flow and heat transfer over a stretching sheet by considering different geometry and obtained exact solutions [10-15].

Forced convective heat transfer in boundary layer flow of Sisko fluid over a nonlinear stretching sheet.

Forced convective heat transfer in boundary layer flow of Sisko fluid over a nonlinear stretching sheet.

Polymeric suspensions such as waterborne coatings are identi- fied to be non-Newtonian in nature and are proven to follow the Sisko fluid model [14]. The Sisko fluid model was originally proposed for high shear rate measurements on lubricating greases [15]. Khan et al. [16] examined the steady flow and heat transfer of a Sisko fluid in annular pipe. Then, Khan and Shahzad [17,18] developed the boundary layer equations for Sisko fluid over planer and radially stretching sheets and found the analytical solutions for only integral values of the power-law index. The utmost studies relating to the heat transfer of Sisko fluid involve only one dimensional flows and literature survey indicates that no work has so far been communicated with regards to heat transfer in a boundary layer flow for Sisko fluid over a nonlinear stretching sheet with variable surface temperature and variable heat flux.

At the current investigation, we refer some latest studies on stretched flows. Rashidi and Mohimanian Pour (2010) obtained the analytic solutions for unsteady boundary-layer flow and heat transfer due to a stretching sheet by means of homotopy analysis method. Further Rashidi and Keimanesh (2010) use the differential transform method and Padé approximant for solving MHD flow in a laminar liquid film from a horizontal stretching surface.

Radiation effect on a steady two-dimensional boundary layer flow of a dusty fluid over a stretching sheet is analyzed by Ramesh and Gireesha (2013). Flow near stagnation-point is very interesting in fluid dynamics. Actually, the stagnation flow takes place whenever the flow impinges to any solid object and the local velocity of the fluid at the stagnation-point is zero.
