The problem of steady Casson nanofluid flow past a wedge is studied in this paper. The presence of magnetic field along with Newtonian heating at the surface is considered. The governing partial differential equations are first transformed into a set of nonlinear ordinary differential equations by similarity transformations, before being solved numerically using the Keller­box method. The effects of the wedge angle from (horizontal plate) to (vertical plate) as well as of as the magnetic parameter M on Ω 0 ∘ 180 ∘ 6/16/2017 MHD Casson nanofluid flow past a wedge with Newtonian heating | SpringerLink https://link.springer.com/article/10.1140%2Fepjp%2Fi2017­11356­5 2/6 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. the non­Newtonian fluid flow and heat transfer characteristics are investigated. It is found that the surface temperature is slightly higher for the flow over a horizontal plate compared to that over a vertical plate. It is also found that the magnetic field decreases the surface temperature but increases the skin friction. The flow of a Newtonian fluid is found to give higher skin friction as compared to that of Casson fluid.
