Abstract

In this paper, the effects of MHD boundary layer on a stagnation point flow and heat transfer over a porous stretching/shrinking surface in nanofluids are analyzed. The resulting system is then solved numerically by Maple 18 software. It is concluded that the magnetic field can be used as a means of controlling the heat transfer characteristics in the presence of copper nanofluid.
