Abstract

The magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) convection flow and heat transfer of an incompressible viscous nanofluid past a semi-infinite vertical stretching sheet in the presence of thermal stratification are examined. The partial differential equations governing the problem under consideration are transformed by a special form of the Lie symmetry group transformations, i.e., a one-parameter group of transformations into a system of ordinary differential equations which are numerically solved using the Runge-Kutta-Gill-based shooting method. It is concluded that the flow field, temperature, and nanoparticle volume fraction profiles are significantly influenced by the thermal stratification and the magnetic field.
