Abstract

The purpose of the present work is to examine the collective influence of thermal radiation and convection flow of Cu-water nanofluid due to a stretching cylinder in a porous medium along with viscous dissipation and slip boundary conditions. The governing non-linear ODEs and auxiliary boundary conditions those obtained by applying assisting similarity transformations have been handled numerically with shooting scheme through Runge-Kutta-integration procedure of fourth-fifth order. The non-dimensional velocity and temperature distribution are designed and also skin friction coefficient as well as heat transfer rate are tabulated for various values of relatable parameters. The results explain that Nusselt number depreciates with boost in radiation parameter, thermal slip parameter and Eckert number. Moreover, it is accelerated with increase in velocity slip parameter and natural convection parameter. The results are distinguished via published ones and excellent accord has been detected.
