Abstract

In this paper, the problem of three-dimensional flow over a stretching surface in a viscoelastic fluid is investigated numerically. The steady laminar boundary layer flow of an incompressible elastico-viscous fluid due to the stretching of a flat surface in two lateral directions through an otherwise quiescent fluid is considered. The governing boundary layer equations are reduced into ordinary differential equations by a similarity transformation. The transformed equations are solved numerically using an implicit finite-difference scheme known as the Keller-box method. The numerical solutions for the velocity components and the wall skin friction coefficients are computed, analyzed and discussed.
