Abstract

The focus of this paper is to study the effects of stagnation point flow and porous medium on ferrofluid flow over a variable thicked sheet. Heat transfer analysis is discussed by including thermal radiation. Suitable transformations are applied to convert partial differential equations to ordinary differential equations. Convergent results for series solutions are calculated. The impact of numerous parameters on velocity and temperature is displayed for series solutions. Graphical behavior for skin friction coefficient and Nusselt number is also analyzed. Numerical values of Nusselt number are tabulated depending upon various parameters
