Abstract

In the present paper, we study the effects of radiation on the thermal boundary layer flow induced by a linearly stretching sheet immersed in an incompressible micropolar fluid with constant surface temperature. Similarity transformation is employed to transform the governing partial differential equations into ordinary ones, which are then solved numerically using the Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg method. Results for the local Nusselt number as well as the temperature profiles are presented for different values of the governing parameters. It is found that the heat transfer rate at the surface decreases in the presence of radiation. Comparison with known results for certain particular cases is excellent.
