• EFFECT OF VARIABLE VISCOSITY ON FLOW OF A MICROPOLAR FLUID OVER A LINEARLY STRETCHING SHEET WITH VARIABLE SURFACE TEMPERATURE

R. K. Deka*, R. Dutta

Abstract


Flow of viscous incompressible micropolar fluid over a linear stretching sheet is analyzed for the case of variable viscosity and variable sheet temperature. It is assumed that viscosity varies as a function of temperature. The basic partial differential equations are reduced to a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations, which are solved numerically using shooting technique. Effect on velocity, angular velocity and temperature profile for different parameters are shown graphically.


Keywords


Variable viscosity, Linear stretching sheet, Micropolar fluid, Variable surface temperature.
