Abstract

The boundary layer forced convection flow, heat and mass transfer over a continuous sheet moving in a nanofluid with suction/injection has been investigated numerically. Slip velocity was considered instead of the usual no-slip condition at the boundary. The governing partial differential equations were transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations using similarity transformation, and were solved numerically using the boundary value problem solver in the Matlab software. The effect of velocity slip and suction/injection on the velocity and temperature profiles, the skin friction coefficient and the rate of heat and mass transfer were computed and discussed in details for various values of the governing parameters. The results were displayed in tables and in graphs. Comparison of the numerically obtained results was made with previously published results and is in good agreement.
