3D Magneto Hydrodynamic Slip Flow of Al50Cu50-Water and Cu-Water Nanofluids over a Variable Thickness Stretched Surface

M. Bharath Kumar, B. Shanmukha


The current paper covers the examination of 3D magneto hydrodynamic nanofluid motion past a slendering (variable thickness) stretching surface under the influence of MHD, Soret and Dufour effects, thermophoresis, Brownian motion and slip impact. For this study, we considered the Cu-water and Al50Cu50-water nanofluids past a non-uniform thickness stretching surface. With the help of similarity transformations, we transformed the derived governed equations as ordinary differential equations. The mathematical outcomes determined by employing Runge-Kutta and Newton’s methods. We reveal and interpretation the graphs for different parameters like magnetic number, volumetric fraction, Soret number, Dufour number, Brownian motion, thermophoresis parameter, stretching parameter, slip parameters h1 and h2. We discussed the skin friction coefficient, reduced Nusselt and reduced Sherwood numbers for the influence of the pertinent parameters with the assistance of tables separately for two nanofluids (Cu-water and Al50Cu50-water nanofluids). Results are validated by comparing with the published results and found a favorable agreement.

Keywords: Slip flow, Slendering sheet, Cross diffusion, MHD.
