Series solution for heat transfer of continuous stretching sheet immersed in a micropolar fluid in the existence of radiation

Abstract : Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to study a two-dimensional steady convective flow of a micropolar fluid over a stretching sheet in the presence of radiation with constant temperature. Design/methodology/approach - The corresponding momentum, microrotation and energy equations are analytically solved using homotopy analysis method (HAM). Findings - To validate the method, investigate the accuracy and convergence of the results, a comparison with existing numerical and experimental results is done for several cases. Finally, by using the obtained analytical solution, for the skin-friction coefficient and the local Nusselt number as well as the temperature, velocity and angular velocity, profiles are obtained for different values of the constant parameters, such as Prandtl number, material, boundary and radiation parameter. Originality/value - In this paper, a series solution is presented for the first time. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.
