Abstract

The flow due to a moving extensible sheet that obeys a more general stretching law is considered. The sheet occupies the negative x-axis and is moving continually in the positive x-direction, in an incompressible viscous and electrically conducting fluid. The sheet somehow disappears in a sink that is located at (x, y) = (0, 0). The governing system of partial differential equations is first transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations, and the transformed equations are solved numerically using a finite-difference scheme, namely the Keller-box method. The features of the flow and heat-transfer characteristics for different values of the governing parameters are analyzed and discussed. It is found that dual solutions exist for the flow near x = 0, where the velocity profiles show a reversed flow.
