Abstract

An analysis is carried out to study the steady two-dimensional stagnation-point flow of a micropolar fluid over a shrinking sheet in its own plane. The shrinking velocity and the ambient fluid velocity are assumed to vary linearly with the distance from the stagnation point. The features of the flow characteristics are analyzed and discussed. Different from a stretching sheet, it is found that the solutions for a shrinking sheet are nonunique.
