Abstract

In the present article, the Authors have carried on their study to investigate the influence of suction, viscous dissipation, variable thermal conductivity, melting heat transfer and electromagnetic field on the non-linear convection flow of Sisko fluid over an inclined electromagnetic sheet. In addition, Brownian motion and thermophoresis mechanism have been introduced. The transformed governing equations complying with the concerned geometry of the problem have been solved by using Fourth order Runge-Kutta method. The significant outcome of the present study is that greater strength of electromagnetic field, Siskofluid parameter, thermal and solutal mixed convection parameters account for the accelerated fluid motion while augmented melting parameter leads to enhancement in heat transfer rate from the electromagnetic sheet. Apart from this the fluid suction reduces the flow velocity and the related momentum boundary layer thickness.
