Rubab K, Mustafa M - PLoS ONE (2016)

Bottom Line: The governing partial differential equations even after employing the boundary layer approximations are non linear.It is noticed that velocity decreases and temperature rises when stronger magnetic field strength is accounted.Penetration depth of temperature is a decreasing function of thermal relaxation time.

ABSTRACT
This letter investigates the MHD three-dimensional flow of upper-convected Maxwell (UCM) fluid over a bi-directional stretching surface by considering the Cattaneo-Christov heat flux model. This model has tendency to capture the characteristics of thermal relaxation time. The governing partial differential equations even after employing the boundary layer approximations are non linear. Accurate analytic solutions for velocity and temperature distributions are computed through well-known homotopy analysis method (HAM). It is noticed that velocity decreases and temperature rises when stronger magnetic field strength is accounted. Penetration depth of temperature is a decreasing function of thermal relaxation time. The analysis for classical Fourier heat conduction law can be obtained as a special case of the present work. To our knowledge, the Cattaneo-Christov heat flux model law for three-dimensional viscoelastic flow problem is just introduced here.

Mentions: The effects of non-dimensional relaxation time γ on temperature distribution can be analyzed from Fig 11. Temperature θ decreases and profiles smoothly descend to zero at shorter distance from the sheet when γ is incremented. This indicates that there will be thinner thermal boundary layer when relaxation time for heat flux is larger. Here the profiles become steeper in the vicinity of the boundary as γ increases which is an indication of the growth in wall slope of temperature θ.
