Abstract

This report presents the flow and heat transfer characteristics on magnetohydrodynamic non-Newtonian fluid across a wedge near the stagnation point. The fluid flow is time independent and laminar. The radiation and irregular heat sink/source effects are deemed. The system of nonlinear ODEs is attained from PDEs by choosing the proper similarity transformations. Further, the well-known shooting and Runge-Kutta methods are utilized to acquire the problem’s solution subject to assumed boundary conditions. Figures are outlined to emphasize the impact of several parameters on the fields of velocity and temperature. Further, the rate of heat transfer and friction factor are also anticipated and portrayed with the assistance of table. Results indicate that the curves of velocity diminish with shrinking parameter, magnetic field parameter and material fluid parameter. Also the non-uniform heat source/sink parameters play a crucial role in the heat transfer performance.
