The radiation effect on a steady two-dimensional boundary layer flow of a dusty fluid over a stretching sheet is analyzed. The governing nonlinear partial differential equations have been transformed by a similarity transformation into a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations and then solved numerically by applying Runge Kutta Fehlberg fourth-fifth order method (RKF45 method). The effect of fluid particle interaction parameter, Prandtl number, Eckert number, and radiation parameter on heat transfer characteristics in two different general cases, namely (1) the prescribed surface temperature (PST) and (2) the prescribed heat flux (PHF) are presented graphically and discussed. The rate of heat transfer is computed and tabulated for various values of the different parameters. Comparison of the obtained numerical results is made with previously published results.
