Abstract

In this paper we study the effect of Brownian motion and Thermophorosis on Maxwell nanofluid flow over a linearly stretching sheet under the influence of oblique external magnetic field. The impact of cross diffusion, frictional heat and irregular heat are considered to be prominent. The effect of inclination of magnetic field and nonuniform heat source/sink on fluid velocity, temperature and nanoparticle concentration are analyzed and depicted in graphs. It is observed that as inclination of magnetic field increases, temperature and nanoparticle concentration also increases whereas fluid velocity decreases. The effect of Dufour number D, Eckrect number Ec, Prandtl number Pr, Brownian motion parameter Nb, Thermophorosis parameter Nt, and Lewis number Le are also studied.
