Abstract

The present article examines the influence of thermal radiation on two-dimensional incompressible magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) mixed convective heat transfer flow of Williamson fluid flowing past a porous wedge. An adequate similarity transformation is adopted to reduce the fundamental boundary layer partial differential equations of Williamson fluid model in to a set of non-linear ordinary differential equations. The solutions of the resulting nonlinear system are obtained numerically using the fifth order numerical scheme the Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg method. The effects of different pertinent physical parameter such as magnetic parameter, Williamson parameter, radiation parameter and Prandtl number on temperature and velocity distributions are observed through graph.
