Abstract

In the presence of magnetic field, steady flow of a micropolar fluid due to a stretching cylinder is studied. Viscosity and thermal conductivity are assumed to be inverse linear functions of temperature. The governing partial differential equations are converted into ordinary differential equations using suitable similarity transformations and then solved by fourth order Runge-Kutta shooting method and developing Matlab programme. The graphs show the effects of different parameters and the skin friction coefficient and Nusselt numbers are shown in tabular form.

Keywords- Micropolar fluid, Stretching cylinder, Variable viscosity, Thermal conductivity.
