Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to analyze the boundary layer flow of an Oldroyd-B fluid with Newtonian heating.

Design/methodology/approach

Series solutions are found by homotopy analysis method.

Findings

Temperature profile increases with an increase in conjugate parameter. Increase in parameter β and Prandtl number Pr decreases the temperature profile.

Originality/value

This work does not currently exist in the literature.
