Non‐similar solution for rotating flow over an exponentially stretching surface

Non‐similar solution for rotating flow over an exponentially stretching surface Purpose – This paper looks into the rotating flow of an incompressible viscous fluid over an exponentially stretching continuous surface. The flow is governed by non‐linear partial differential equations. A non‐similar solution is developed after transforming the governing equations using two different numerical techniques namely Keller‐box and shooting methods. The influence of the non‐dimensional local rotating parameter Ω on the velocity fields and skin friction coefficients is analyzed and discussed. Design/methodology/approach – In this paper, the authors have used the well‐known numerical methods, Keller‐box and shooting. Findings – It is observed that for the increase in the rotation velocity of the frame there is a reduction in the boundary layer thickness and an increase in the drag force at the surface. Originality/value – The present study is concerned with the boundary layer flow of a rotating viscous fluid over an exponentially stretching sheet. Numerical solutions are found. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first investigation of the topic. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat and Fluid Flow Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – This paper looks into the rotating flow of an incompressible viscous fluid over an exponentially stretching continuous surface. The flow is governed by non‐linear partial differential equations. A non‐similar solution is developed after transforming the governing equations using two different numerical techniques namely Keller‐box and shooting methods. The influence of the non‐dimensional local rotating parameter Ω on the velocity fields and skin friction coefficients is analyzed and discussed. Design/methodology/approach – In this paper, the authors have used the well‐known numerical methods, Keller‐box and shooting. Findings – It is observed that for the increase in the rotation velocity of the frame there is a reduction in the boundary layer thickness and an increase in the drag force at the surface. Originality/value – The present study is concerned with the boundary layer flow of a rotating viscous fluid over an exponentially stretching sheet. Numerical solutions are found. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first investigation of the topic.
