The purpose of this paper is to study the impact of Joule heating on boundary layer flow and melting heat transfer of Prandtl fluid over a stretching sheet in the presence of fluid particles suspension. The transformed boundary layer equations are solved numerically by RKF-45 method. The influence of the non-dimensional parameters on velocity and temperature growths in the boundary layer region is analyzed in detail and the results are shown graphically. The results indicate that the larger estimation of α and β reduces for both velocity and temperature profile. Further, the rate of heat transfer decreases by increasing melting parameter.
The converted set of boundary layer equations is solved numerically by RKF-45 method. Obtained numerical results for flow and heat transfer characteristics are deliberated for various physical parameters. Furthermore, the skin friction coefficient and Nusselt number are also presented.
It is found that the heat transfer rates are advanced in the occurrence of non-linear radiation camper to linear radiation. Also, it is noticed that velocity profile increases by increasing Prandtl parameter but establishes opposite results for temperature profile.
The authors intend to analyze the boundary layer flow and melting heat transfer of a Prandtl fluid over a stretching surface in the presence of fluid particles suspension. The governing systems of partial differential equations have been transformed to a set of coupled ordinary differential equations by applying appropriate similarity transformations. The reduced equations are solved numerically. The pertinent parameters are discussed through graphs and plotted graphs. The present results are compared with the existing limiting solutions, showing good agreement with each other.
