Publication Date



This research is examining, a continuous, laminar, flow of a micropolar nanofluid through a stretched and shrinking wedge in the presence of heat generation or absorption and applied magnet field over a wedge surface. A number of governing parameters are employed to assess the results. The governing partial differential equations were transformed into ordinary differential equations which were solved numerically by using the Runge Kutta Gill and shooting methods. The steady-state velocity, temperature, and angular velocity profiles are shown graphically. The result showed the effects of nanoparticle concentration, wedge angle, suction and material parameter on velocity, temperature and angular velocity fields.
