Keywords:Casson fluid model, boundary layer flows, permeable slippery Riga plate, radiative heat transfer, stretching/shrinking sheet
This study is aimed to analyze the steady of stagnation point flow and radiative heat transfer of a non-Newtonian fluid which is Casson fluid passing over an exponentially permeable slippery Riga plate in presence of thermal radiation, magnetic field, velocity slip, thermal slip, and viscous dissipation effects. The governing partial differential equations are transformed into ordinary differential equations by using similarity transformation then solved numerically by boundary value problem solver (BVP4C) in MATLAB software package. The numerical results are evaluated with previous researches to reach an agreement with the parameters of the current study. This study is discussing the behavior of the velocity and temperature profiles as well as skin friction coefficient and local Nusselt number for various physical parameters such as magnetic field, radiation, suction, thermal slip, velocity slip, Prandtl number, Eckert number and modified Hartmann number. Numerical results are shown graphically for each parameter with different values. It is found that the momentum boundary layer thickness increases with increasing the values of Casson parameter. The temperature decreases when the velocity slip parameter and thermal slip parameter are increased.
