Effect of Magnetic Field on the Flow and Heat Transfer in a Casson Thin Film on an Unsteady Stretching Surface in the Presence of Viscous and Internal Heating
Abstract: The aim of this investigation is to analyze the effectiveness of Lorentz force, viscous dissipation and internal heating on the heat and flow characteristics of a non-Newtonian Casson fluid thin film resting on a stretching surface under the influence of a magnetic field. Employing suitable similarity variables and shooting technique and integrating scheme numerical solutions for velocity and temperature are obtained. The results of this analysis are compared with the published work and are found to be in good agreement. The thickness of the thin film is evaluated and is observed that Lorentz force and the non-Newtonian nature of the fluid have a thinning influence on the film. Velocity and temperature distributions in the thin film are discussed for various flow parameters.
