Abstract

This investigation is concerned with the steady boundary layer stagnation-point flow and heat transfer past an exponential stretching sheet. The highly nonlinear coupled partial differential equations are simplified with the help of suitable similarity transformations. The reduced equations are then treated with homotopy analysis method (HAM). The heat transfer problem is modeled using two point convective boundary conditions. The effects of controlling parameters on the dimensionless velocity, temperature, skin friction coefficient and heat transfer rate are analyzed. It is found that the HAM results match well with numerical results obtained by Runge Kutta Fehlberg fourth-fifth order method for different assigned values of parameters.

The results indicate that the stretching parameter reduces the hydrodynamic boundary layer thickness whereas Prandtl number reduces the thermal boundar layer thickness.
