Abstract

The heat transfer characteristics of an unsteady boundary layer flow of a nanofluid past a stretching sheet with a convective surface boundary condition are studied. Numerical solutions to the governing equations are obtained using a shooting method. The results are found for the reduced Nusselt number as well as the temperature profiles for some values of the unsteadiness parameter, convective parameter, thermophoresis parameter, Brownian motion parameter and Lewis number. The results indicate that the reduced Nusselt number is lower for higher values of the unsteadiness parameter, thermophoresis parameter, Brownian motion parameter and Lewis number. However, the reduced Nusselt number increases with increasing values of the convective parameter.
