PurposeThis paper aims to investigate laminar boundary layer flow and heat transfer from a warm laminar Casson liquid to a melting sheet moving parallel to a melting stream. The governing equations, i.e. continuity, momentum and heat transfer, are coupled non-linear partial differential equations. These equations are reduced to non-linear ordinary differential equations by means of similarity transformations, converted into first-order differential equations, and are solved numerically using the Runge–Kutta–Felhberg method with an efficient shooting technique. The velocity and temperature profiles are plotted for various values of the governing parameters, such as the moving parameter, Prandlt number, melting parameter and Casson parameter. It is found that the problem admits multiple solutions. The results of this study are validated by comparing them with the earlier published studies’ results. Thus, a good agreement is obtained.Design/methodology/approachThis study carries out numerical solution of melting heat transfer analysis.FindingsThe findings of this study show the analysis of flow and melting heat transfer characteristics.Research limitations/implicationsIn this study, analysis of dual solution is carried out.Originality/valueIn this paper, the melting heat transfer analysis on Blasius flow of a Casson fluid is taken into consideration. To the best of the author’s knowledge, no investigations have been reported on this topic.
