The purpose of this study is to investigate the magneto-hydrodynamics boundary layer Falkner–Skan flow over a flat plate numerically by using the Runge–Kutta method featuring shooting technique and analytically via a new modified analytical technique called improved generalized Adomian decomposition method (improved-GDM).
It is well established that the generalized decomposition method (GDM) (Yong-Chang et al., 2008), which uses a new kind of decomposition strategy for the nonlinear function, has proved its efficiency and superiority when compared to the standard ADM method. In this investigation, based on the idea of improved-ADM method developed by Lina and Song (Song and Wang, 2013), the authors proposed a new analytical algorithm of computation named improved-GDM. Thereafter, the proposed algorithm is tested by solving the nonlinear problem of the hydro-magnetic boundary layer flow over a flat plate.
The proposed improved generalized decomposition method (I-GDM) introduces a convergence-control parameter “ω’’ into the GDM, which accelerates the convergence of solution and reduces considerably the computation time. In fact, the key of this method is mainly based on the best selection of the convergence-control parameter ω.
The paper presents a new efficient algorithm of computation that can be considered as an alternative for solving the nonlinear initial boundary layer value problems. Obtained results show clearly the accuracy of the proposed method.
