Abstract

The purpose of this research is to examine effects of thermal radiation and magnetic field on 2D stagnation point flow toward a stretching sheet. The governing equations are transformed into a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations by similarities transformation method and then, solved, numerically using implicit finite difference scheme. The Velocity profile increase for higher values of stagnation point parameter, opposite occurred with magnetic field. The temperature profile is an increasing function of radiative energy.
