Title: Impact of melting heat transfer and variable characteristics on an MHD non-Newtonian shear-thinning fluid flow with gyrotactic microorganisms over a nonlinear stretched surface


The objective of this work is to examine how temperature dependent thermal conductivity and concentration dependent molecular diffusion affects Reiner-Philippoff nanofluid flow past a nonlinear stretching sheet. At the interface of elongated surface zero-mass flux and melting heat condition are incorporated. The formulated mathematical problem is simplified by implementing suitable similarity transformations. For the numerical solution bvp4c is utilized. The parameters emerging in the model are discussed versus allied profiles through graphical illustrations. It is perceived that the velocity of the fluid decays on incrementing the Bingham number. The gyrotactic microorganism profile declines on amplifying the Peclet number. The validation of the proposed model is also added to this study.

Keywords: Reiner-Philippoff nanofluid; Nonlinear stretching sheet; Melting heat transfer; Gyrotactic micro-organisms.
