Abstract

The study of thermal radiative heat transfer of an electrically conducting fluid over a continuously stretching sheet in the presence of a uniform inclined magnetic field with dissipation in a porous medium is investigated for power-law variation in the sheet temperature. The fluid viscosity and thermal conductivity are assumed to vary as a function of temperature. The governing partial differential equations of the model are reduced to a system of coupled non-linear ordinary differential equations by applying similarity variables and then solved numerically using shooting technique with fourth-order Runge-Kutta method. The results for Skin friction and Nusselt numbers are presented and discussed.
