Abstract

In this paper, the problem of steady laminar two-dimensional boundary layer flow and heat transfer of an incompressible viscous fluid with a presence of thermal radiation over an exponentially stretching sheet is investigated numerically. The governing boundary layer equations are reduced into ordinary differential equations by a similarity transformation. The transformed equations are solved numerically using an implicit finitedifference scheme known as the Keller-box method. The numerical solutions for the wall skin friction coefficient, the heat transfer coefficient, and the velocity and temperature profiles are computed, analyzed and discussed.
