Abstract

Abstract The  problem  of  hydromagnetic  nanofluid  flow  in  the  presence  of  radiation  and  non-uniform  heat generation/absorption  past  an  exponentially  stretching  sheet  is  modeled  in  this  study.  By  using  similarity transformation,  the  equations  of  the  flow  are  transformed  to  nonlinear  coupled  differential  equations.  The equations  are  then  solved  by  the  method  of  asymptotic  series  and  the  various  flow  profiles  for  the  parameters governing  the  flow  were  obtained  using  the  software  “Mathematica  Version  10”.  It  is  observed  that  increase  in the  magnetic  field  and  radiation  parameters  lead  to  decrease  in  the  velocity,  while  increase  in  the  stretching sheet  parameter  and  thermal  Grashfof  number  results  in  increase  in  the  velocity  and  decrease  temperature  and concentration  respectively.  An  increase  in  thermopheresis,  thermal  conductivity  leads  to  increase  in temperature  and  concentration  distributions  in  the  system.
