Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to study steady, laminar, natural convection boundary‐layer flow over a permeable vertical cone embedded in a porous medium saturated with a nanofluid in the presence of uniform lateral mass flux.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper studies steady, laminar, natural convection boundary‐layer flow over a permeable vertical cone embedded in a porous medium saturated with a nanofluid in the presence of uniform lateral mass flux.

Findings

The presence of nanoparticles has significant effects of heat transfer.

Originality/value

The area of nanofluids is very original.
