Abstract

Consideration is given to flow and heat transfer of nano-fluids over a permeable flat plate with convective boundary condition. The governing partial differential equations are transformed into ordinary differen- tial equations using similarity solutions, before being solved numerically. Two types of nano-fluids, Cu– water and Ag–water are considered. The effects of nano-particles volume fraction, the type of nano-par- ticles and permeability parameter on skin friction and convection heat transfer coefficient are studied and discussed. It is shown that the increment in skin friction is a considerable drawback imposed by Cu–water and Ag–water nano-fluids, especially in case of injection. In the cases of injection and imper- meable surface, increasing the nano-particles volume fraction results in augmentation of convection heat transfer rate. However, in the case of suction, adding Cu and Ag particles reduces the convection heat transfer coefficient at the surface in spite of thermal conductivity enhancement imposed by the nano- particles.
