Free Convection Nanofluid Flow in the Stagnation-Point Region of a Three Dimensional Body

U. FAROOQ, H. XU

Abstract


Analytical results are presented for the steady three-dimensional free convection flow in the stagnation point region on a general curved isothermal surface placed in a nanofluid. A kind of new similarity transformations is defined and hence the momen- tum, energy balance equations and nanoparticle concenteration equation are reduced to a set of four fully coupled nonlinear differential equations. A well known technique OHAM is applied the high efficiency and reliability of the results is discussed by so-called average squared residual error
