Application of MATLAB bvp4c solver scheme in Walter fluid flow and its
In this research paper, a numerical investigation of effects of Reynolds
number and Elastic number, using MATLAB built in bvp4c solver technique
has been done on Walter B fluid flow past a vertical channel. The
suitable similarity transformation has been adopted to convert the
boundary layer governing equations (Partial Differential Equations) into
its corresponding solvable ordinary differential equations and these
equations are solved using MATLAB bvp4c scheme. The normal and
tangential velocity profiles are drawn for various values of parameter
such as Reynolds number (Re) and Elastic number (S) and results are
analysed graphically. It is perceived that with enhance of Reynolds
number as well as Elastic number the normal velocity profile enhances.
Further an error analysis has been done by comparing the work with the
results obtained from Homotopy Perturbation Method and the comparison is
found to be in very good agreement.
