Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to focus on the stratified phenomenon through vertical stretching cylinder in the region of stagnation point with slip effects.

Design/methodology/approach

Homotopy analysis method is used to find the series solutions of the governing equations.

Findings

Velocity profile decreases with an increase in stratified parameters due to temperature and concentration. Velocity and thermal slips cause a reduction in the velocity profile. Thermally stratified and thermal slip parameters reduce the temperature field.

Originality/value

The present analysis has not been existed in the literature yet.
