Abstract

An analysis is carried out for the steady two-dimensional flow of a micropolar fluid over a shrinking sheet in its own plane. The shrinking velocity is assumed to vary linearly with the distance from a fixed point on the sheet. The features of the flow and heat transfer characteristics are analyzed and discussed. It is found that the solution exists only if adequate suction through the permeable sheet is introduced. Moreover, stronger suction is necessary for the solution to exist for a micropolar fluid compared to a classical Newtonian fluid. Dual solutions are obtained for certain suction and material parameters.
