Abstract

In the present analysis, an unsteady MHD mixed convection flow is scrutinized for a non-Newtonian Casson hybrid nanofluid in the stagnation zone of a rotating sphere, resulting from the impulsive motion of the angular velocity of the sphere and the velocity of the free stream. A set of linearized equations is derived from the governing ones, and these differential equations are solved numerically using the hybrid linearization–differential quadrature method. The surface shear stresses in the x-and y-directions and the surface heat transfer rate are improved due to the Casson βo, mixed convection α, rotation γ and magnetic field M parameters. In addition, as nanoparticles, the solid volume fraction (parameter φ) increases, and the surface shear stresses and the rate of heat transfer are raised. A comparison between earlier published data and the present numerical computations is presented for the limiting cases, which are noted to be in very good agreement.
