The paper deals with the effect of
heat source on steady flow of a viscous incompressible fluid over a heated
stretching sheet with temperature dependent viscosity. A magnetic field of
uniform strength is applied normal to the flow. In order to establish a finite
instead of an infinite boundary condition, the governing equations in
non-dimensional form are transformed to new system of co-ordinates, in which
the equation of motion is a non-linear ordinary differential equation that is
linearised by Quassi-linearisation method. Then they are transformed to system
of linear equations using finite difference formulae for which a numerical code
is executed using C-program.
The results for
the velocity, temperature, Skin friction and Heat transfer are discussed and
analysed.From this study, it is found that the temperature and velocity of the
fluid increase in the presence heat source.
Keywords: Steady flow, heated stretching sheet, heat source, Quassi-linearization
and finite difference methods.
