MHD Tangent Hyperbolic Nano-fluid Flow in a Porous Medium with Melting Heat transfer near the Stagnation Point

Asghar Ali, Rashida Hussain, Muhammad Ahsaan


The present work deals with the study of MHD stagnation point of a tangent hyperbolic nano-fluid through a non-Darcy porous medium with melting heat transfer. The basic leading energy, concentration and momentum PDEs are condensed into non- linear ODEs by consuming suitable likeness methodology. Numerical procedure Bvp4c in MATLAB is utilized to resolve ensuing system of ODEs. The measureable effects of non-dimensional physical parameters specifically wall thickness, stretching sheet parameter, Hartmann number, shape parameter, Prandtl number, inverse Darcy parameter, local inertia coefficient and melting parameter on the velocity, temperature and concentration profiles are studied and displayed graphically. Skin friction, Nusselt number and Sherwood number are consequential, considered numerically for discrete guesstimates of physical parameters through graphs.
