Abstract

The present paper deals with the analysis of boundary-layer flow of a micropolar fluid on a fixed or continuous moving plane surface. Both parallel and reverse moving surfaces to the free stream are considered. The resulting system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations is solved numerically using the Keller-box method. Numerical results are obtained for skin friction coefficient, local Nusselt number, velocity, angular velocity, and temperature profiles. The results indicate that the effect of the material parameter on skin friction and heat transfer depends on the velocity ratio of the plate and the fluid.
