Abstract

Purpose

This paper looks into the rotating flow of an incompressible viscous fluid over an exponentially stretching continuous surface. The flow is governed by non‐linear partial differential equations. A non‐similar solution is developed after transforming the governing equations using two different numerical techniques namely Keller‐box and shooting methods. The influence of the non‐dimensional local rotating parameter Ω on the velocity fields and skin friction coefficients is analyzed and discussed.

Design/methodology/approach

In this paper, the authors have used the well‐known numerical methods, Keller‐box and shooting.

Findings

It is observed that for the increase in the rotation velocity of the frame there is a reduction in the boundary layer thickness and an increase in the drag force at the surface.

Originality/value

The present study is concerned with the boundary layer flow of a rotating viscous fluid over an exponentially stretching sheet. Numerical solutions are found. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first investigation of the topic.
