Abstract

An analysis is performed for magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) Williamson nanofluid flow over a continuously moving heated surface with thermal radiation and heat source. The governing partial differential equations are transformed into self-similar ordinary differential equations using similarity transformations. The obtained self-similar equations are solved by finite difference method using quasilinearization technique. Mathematical analysis of various physical parameters is presented in graphs. The impact of physical parameters on skin-friction coefficient, reduced Nusselt and Sherwood numbers are shown in tabular and graphical form. Furthermore, comparison of the present analysis is made with the previously existing literature and an appreciable agreement in the values is observed for the limiting case.
