Lower Stagnation Point Flow of Convectively Heated Horizontal Circular Cylinder in Jeffrey Nanofluid with Suction/Injection
Keywords:Lower stagnation point, Jeffrey nanofluid, convective boundary conditions, suction/injection, mixed convection
Lower stagnation point flow of Jeffrey nanofluid from a horizontal circular cylinder is addressed under the influences of suction/injection, mixed convection and convective boundary conditions. Copper (Cu) is taken as the nanoparticles while Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) water is taken as the base fluid. The transformed boundary layer equations through the non-dimensional variables and non-similarity transformation variables are subsequently tackled by means of the Runge-Kutta Fehlberg method (RKF 45). The impact of dimensionless parameters such as the suction/injection, nanoparticles volume fraction and Deborah number are graphically presented and discussed in detail. The outcomes reveal that the velocity and temperature profiles are both augmented with rising values of nanoparticles volume fraction. Velocity profile escalates as suction/injection parameter rises but declines as Deborah number upsurges. Temperature profile reduces when suction/injection parameter enlarges and augments when Deborah number increases.
