Abstract

We investigate the effects of momentum, thermal, and solute slip boundary conditions on nanofluid boundary layer flow along a permeable surface. The conventional no-slip boundary conditions at the surface are replaced by slip boundary conditions. At moderate to high temperatures, the temperature-concentration dependence relation is nonlinear and the Soret effect is significant. The governing partial differential equations are solved numerically. The influence of significant parameters on the fluid properties as well as on the skin friction, local Nusselt number, local Sherwood number, and the local nanoparticle Sherwood number are determined. We show, among other results, that the existence and uniqueness of the solutions depends on the slip parameters, and that the region of existence of the dual solution increases with the slip parameters.
