The Flow and Heat Transfer Over a Shrinking Cylinder in Nanofluid with Partial Slip and Thermal Convective Boundary Condition
The steady boundary layer flow over a shrinking cylinder with partial slip and thermal convective boundary
condition is numerically studied. Using a similarity transformations, the governing partial differential equations are
transformed into a set of nonlinear differential equations and have been solved numerically using a shooting method. The
influences of the governing parameters namely the curvature parameter γ, Prandtl number Pr, Lewis number Le, velocity slip
parameter σ, Biot number Bi, mass suction parameter S, Brownian motion parameter Nb and thermophoresis parameter Nt on
the flow, heat and mass transfers characteristics are presented graphically. The numerical results obtained for the skin friction
coefficient, local Nusselt number and local Sherwood number are thoroughly determined and presented graphically for several
values of the governing parameters. It is found that the dual solutions exist for a certain range of mass suction parameter.
Otherwise, it is observed that as curvature parameter increases, the skin friction coefficient and heat transfer rate decrease,
meanwhile the mass transfer rates increase.
