Khashi'ie, Najiyah Safwa and Md Arifin, Norihan and Hafidzuddin, Mohd Ezad Hafidz and Wahi, Nadihah (2019) MHD mixed convective stagnation point flow with heat generation past a shrinking sheet. ASM Science Journal, 12 (1 spec.). pp. 71-81. ISSN 1823-6782


This paper investigates the influence of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) mixed convective stagnation point flow over a shrinking sheet with the enhancement of heat generation/source. Using appropriate similarity transformations, the model are transformed into a system of nonlinear equations and then solved using bvp4c built-in-function in Matlab. Numerical results are presented graphically for the distributions of velocity, temperature as well as the skin friction coefficient and local Nusselt number. The findings revealed the dual solutions obtained within a particular range of the mixed convection parameter and shrinking parameter. It is found that the fluid velocity increases with the increasing values of the magnetic and mixed convection parameter while opposite results obtained for the fluid temperature. A stability analysis was performed and it is proven that the first solution is physically realizable and stable whereas the second solution is unstable.
