Abstract

Casson fluid flow with variable viscosity in porous media over a heated stretching sheet is investigated. The partial differential equations representing the flow motion are first transformed to ordinary differential equations by similarity transformation before being solved numerically by the finite-difference method. The effects of the viscosity variation parameter, the permeability number, Prandtl number (Pr), Biot number (Bi) and non-Newtonian fluid parameter on the fluid flow and heat transfer, along with the temperature and velocity profiles, are presented graphically for some arbitrary values.
