Series solutions for the stagnation flow of a second-grade fluid over a shrinking sheet
- 106 Downloads
This study derives the analytic solutions of boundary layer flows bounded by a shrinking sheet. With the similarity transformations, the partial differential equations are reduced into the ordinary differential equations which are then solved by the homotopy analysis method (HAM). Two-dimensional and axisymmetric shrinking flow cases are discussed.
