Hydromagnetic Visco-Elastic Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer Over a Non-Isothermal Stretching Surface Embedded in a Porous Medium
M. Subhas Abel, Ambuja Joshi, K.V. Prasad and Mehboob Ali

This paper presents an analytic study of steady hydromagnetic boundary layer visco-elastic fluid flow over a non-isothermal stretching surface embedded in a porous medium. Two different cases of heat transfer are considered namely, i) The sheet with prescribed surface temperature (PST). ii) The sheet with prescribed heat flux (PHF). The governing differential equations are solved analytically and the effects of the various parameters on the velocity profiles, temperature profiles, wall heat transfer and concentration profiles are presented graphically.
