Eyring-Powell non-Newtonian fluid flow with Joule heating and thermal
radiation effects: A numerical study.
AbstractThe Eyring-Powell non-Newtonian fluid model is widely used to described
flow behavior with lowest and highest shear rates. Statistical analysis
is carried out in this present article to explore non-Newtonian BL flow
past an elongating sheet which is moving with linear velocity.
Similarity transforms are applied to express fluid governing equations
as ODEs which are then solved by bvp4c algorithm in MATLAB software. In
the energy equation thermal radiation and joule heating effects are
considered. Important key factors such as Nusselt number and friction at
the surface are computed with respect to different influencing fluid
