Impact of Magnetohydrodynamics on Stagnation Point Slip Flow due to Nonlinearly Propagating Sheet with Nonuniform Thermal Reservoir
In this analysis, we introduced heat convective aspects of stagnation point movement of a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) stream on a nonlinear oscillating plane with the impacts of velocity and heat slips with variable heat reservoir. By using some appropriate transformations, the governing differential equations are switched into an ordinary differential equation. The semianalytics technique called Homotpy Analysis Method (HAM) has been applied to evaluate the ordinary differential equations. For convergence achievement, a numerical method BVPh2-midpoint method is also applied and an outstanding agreement is found. The impacts of the governing constraints on flow, motion, and temperature distributions are investigated in detail. We observed that the temperature distribution increases with nonlinear heat reservoir parameter. Our results, in some limiting situations, matched well with previously published results, which approve that our obtained results are correct.
It is, to some extent, understood that the present generation depends on the achievements of physical sciences which are based on production industries. Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) boundary-layer flow on an elongating surface is important because of its frequent uses in industrial engineering and various production processes such as the aerodynamic squeezing of polymers, rolling at high temperature, cooling control technology, and glass fiber production. The magnetohydrodynamics can display certain characteristics in heat conductivity as it has both fluid as well as magnetic features. Raju et al.  investigated an extensive study of the least squares finite element method over a varying boundary layer explored the stagnation flow. Gorla  studied a viscoelastic (a nonclassical) liquid of stagnation movement in pulsating magnetic field. Gorla concluded that the shear stress coefficients are directly proportional to the magnetic field. Takhar et al.  investigated magnetohydrodynamic nonlinear stagnation point interface movement. Besser et al.  presented a technique of annihilating the magnetic field in the limit of MHD equations for a noncompressible ionized fluid having constant viscosity and resistivity as exchange parameters. Massoudi and Ramezan  examined the heat convective features of fluid (i.e., viscoelastic) at stagnation point flow. Ariel  studied multidirectional stagnation point movement of viscoelastic material. Mahapatra and Gupta  derived an exactly matched solution of Navier–Stokes equations which characterizes a uniform axisymmetric stagnation point flux towards an elongating surface. It is observed that the flow shows a boundary-layer arrangement when the velocity of the elongating sheet is smaller than the free stream velocity and a counter boundary layer is made when the starching sheet velocity is greater than the free stream velocity. Abel et al.  studied the influence of varying temperature source on magnetohydrodynamics heat convection in the fluid thin layer on a nonuniform elongating surface.
Yazdi et al.  evaluated the magnetohydrodynamics slip streaming on the nonuniform porous elongating sheet in the existence of a chemical process. The slip stream takes place if the distinctive size of flow regime is much smaller or the flow pressure is weak. Hsiao  has worked on an incompressible uniform MHD stagnation point movement of a second-order viscoelastic liquid and thermal conduction caused by a flow oscillating surface, and it is observed that viscoelastic liquid flow thermal effect is better than nonviscoelastic liquid flow thermal effect. Rasheed et al.  analyzed numerical and analytical investigation of thin-film nanofluid flow over an angular surface. Roşca et al.  presented an analysis for the uniform boundary-layer movement and heat transformation of a non-Newtonian fluid in the stagnation point along with unsteady propagating plane sheet of the unrestricted flow slip velocity and presented a dual (upper and lower branch) solution for certain variables. Dessie and Kishan  studied the magnetohydrodynamics over boundary-layer stream and heat transformation of fluid material with varying viscosity, permeable channel, heat reservoir, and viscous dissipation, respectively. Rasheed et al.  investigated the two-dimensional viscoelastic fluid with nonuniform heat generation over permeable stretching sheet with slip condition. Hassan  described the charge carrying viscous interface-layer flow and thermal transfer. Shen et al.  studied the MHD-varied heat transfer flow near a stagnation point flow on a nonuniform stretching surface with velocity slip. Tufail and Ali  investigated the effects of fluid flow and heat convection due to a nonlinear stretching sheet. Gireesha et al.  examined the hydromagnetic heat conduction in a mixed viscous fluid over uniform stretching thermovariant surface and observed the effects of different relevant parameters on flow and heat transfer. Zaidi and Mohyud-Din  studied the convective transformation of heat and significance of MHD effects in different technologies.
Khan et al. [20–25] discussed the impact of various non-Newtonian fluid materials for wire coating analysis in the presence of magnetic field. Kuman et al.  investigated the characteristics of entropy generation in radiative flow of CNTs Casson nanofluid in rotating channels with heat source. Khan et al.  studied the analytical and numerical solutions of an Oldroyd 8-constant fluid in double-layer optical fiber coating as a coating material. Nandeppanavar et al.  studied heat conduction over a nonuniform elongating surface with unsteady heat reservoir and flexible temperature at boundary , and fluid layer flow is caused by a nonuniform elongating surface , magnetohydrodynamic stagnation point stream movement and heat convection , and second-degree slip effects over flow movement . Ibrahim and Ul Haq  studied the heat transformation in fluid and MHD stagnation point movement and observed that the thickness of heat conducting layer rises when the thermophoresis factor reduces with Prandtl number
By studying the foresaid investigations, it is found that there is no research on the stagnation point movement of a non-Newtonian fluid and thermal convection with thermal jump and momentum in the existence of an unsteady heat reservoir as a result of the moving sheet. In this analysis, we studied the said constraints on flow and heat transfer.
2. Mathematical Formulation
Figure 1 demonstrates physical configuration of the considered problem. Here, we measured two-dimensional steady, flow, and transfer of heat analysis in case of an incompressible fluid in the occurrence of transverse magnetic field strength affected normally on flow moment which give us a unique form given as follows:where is a constant and is a coordinate along the plate measured from the leading edge. The plate is moving inside or outside the origin with the velocity in an exterior (in viscid) flow of the velocity , where and are the corresponding velocity components in the and directions, respectively. Here, is assumed as a temperature of the plate and ambient fluid is which is the constant temperature. The governing equations of continuity, momentum, and energy equations are as follows:where is the conductivity (electrical) of the fluid, is the thermal diffusivity constant, and and are velocity components in the , respectively.
The initial and boundary conditions are as follows:
We guess the velocity slip factor and the temperature slip factor change with in the form and , respectively, where and are positive slip constants. Furthermore, it is expected that surface temperature , where is the characteristics temperature parameter and is the wall temperature parameter. It is concluded from and against physical point of view, n should vary in the range . If , then and become singular at chose to the leading edge of the plate. It is remembered that the boundary layer does not start at but starts in the vicinity of the leading edge of the plate .
Therefore, the solution for is realizable from the mathematical point of view. is the specific heat at constant pressure, is the electrical conductivity, is the applied magnetic field, is the viscosity, is the temperature, is the thermal conductivity of the fluid, and is the rate of nonuniform heat generation/absorption coefficient and defined aswhere and are the conditions of space- and temperature-dependent heat generation/absorption, respectively. We notice that for the internal thermal generation and for the internal thermal absorption .
3. Transformation of PDEs into ODEs
Using self-similar solution by means of the similarity function , define
Evaluating equations (2)–(4) with the help of the boundary conditions given in (5) and using the similarity transformation techniques,where denotes stream function, defined by denotes kinematic viscosity. The governor partial differential equations (PDEs) given in equations (3) and (4) are transferred into ordinary differential equations. By using equations (6)–(8) in equations (2)–(4), we acquire a set of ordinary differential equations given below:where denotes the Prandtl number, and the transferred boundary conditions given in equation (5) takes the formwhere is the moving parameter with corresponding to downstream movement of the plate from the origin, while corresponding to the moving of the plate into the origin is the velocity slip parameter and denotes the temperature slip parameter. It is worth noticing when (stagnation point flow), (isothermal plate), and , equations (9) and (10) along with the boundary conditions (11) become identical for (stagnation point flow and heat transfer) .
Physical quantities for local skin-friction coefficient and local Nusselt number in this problem are defined aswhere skin friction (shear stress) along the plate is , and wall heat is given by
4. Solution by HAM (Homotopy Analysis Method)
The governing nonlinear partial differential equations (3) and (4) are converted into nonlinear ordinary differential equations (9) and (10). To find the solutions of equations (9) and (10), five boundary conditions are required: three on equation of motion and two on equations of temperature, respectively. But here are missing boundary conditions; hence, solving the boundary value problem of equations (9) and (10) is difficult. Therefore, in the boundary conditions given in equation (11) we replace infinity to the finite value. Equations (9) and (10) with boundary condition (11) are solved analytically by HAM and numerical by BVPh2-midpoint methods. The optimal HAM [35–37] gives better results compared with perturbation techniques and other conventional investigative techniques. Firstly, the optimal HAM gives us a remarkable flexibility to pick the equation type of linear subproblems. Secondly, the optimal HAM works regardless of the possibility that there does not exists any small/large physical parameter in determining equations and boundary/initial conditions. Particularly, unlike perturbation and other analytic techniques, the optimal HAM gives us an advantageous approach to guarantee the convergence of a series solution by presenting the supposed convergence control parameter into the series solution.
5. Convergence of the Optimal HAM Method
The auxiliary parameters and have a leading purpose of controlling the convergence of homotopic solutions. To get convergent solutions, we take the suggested values of these parameters. For this reason, residual errors are noticed for the momentum, and thermal energy equations by initiating the expressions are given as
The convergence of the parametric values computed through optimal HAM is listed in Table 1 using the values of the parameters , while the error decay for 10th-order approximation is shown in Figure 2.
Here, denotes the total discrete square residual error which is used to obtained optimal convergence control parameters.

7. Discussion on Results
In this paper, an analysis is introduced to investigate magnetohydrodynamic slip flow and thermal convection of the stagnate point of an elongating surface along with nonuniform oscillating plane along a free flow. The momentum and heat convection equations for the nearest neighbor layer of interface have been explained analytically and derived for various analytical equations for temperature profile. The outcomes of the semianalytical computations are displayed in different figures. The characteristic parameters which are investigated in this paper are power-law index , boundary-layer temperature , Prandtl number , magnetic field parameter , and spatial dependent heat reservoir parameters , respectively. We now continue to discuss the results. Figures 3 and 4 demonstrate the stream velocity profiles for the various values of (oscillating parameter) and (velocity slip parameter), respectively. It has been observed that the rising of and causes reduction in the width of the boundary-layer movement.
Figure 5 describes velocity and flow profiles of various input of power index variable while the other parameters are kept fixed. It is observed that rising the power index variable, the stream movement and velocity rise, which cause an increment in the width of the momentum boundary wall layer. Figure 6 exhibits the velocity sketch for various input of . From here, it is detected that velocity along with the boundary-layer thickness reduces when M is increased. This may be due to the application of electromagnetic force (Lorentz force).
Figures 7 and 8 depict the velocity profiles for the various inputs of and . In these figures, we can see that as the value of advances, the thickness of velocity increases but we observed a reverse result when the velocity slip parameter increases. Figures 9 and 10 show the skin-friction profile for different values of and . In these profiles, it is clear that the width of the skin-friction of boundary wall layer grows wider as the values of parameter increase and shrink with rising of the velocity slip flow parameter .
Figures 11 and 12 illustrate the temperature profile for various input values of power index and some other physical variables which reveals that the thickness of the thermal-conducting boundary layer decreases with increasing the nonlinear stretching parameter . Because of electromagnetic (Lorentz) force, the thickness of the heat convective boundary layer increases as the magnetic field strength increases; henceforth, Figure 13 is sketched for the temperature dependence upon the magnetic field.
Figures 14 and 15 show the temperature profiles for different inputs of Pr. These figures illustrate that, on increasing the Prandtl number Pr, the thickness of the thermal-conducting boundary layer decreases; hence, the temperature decreases.
Temperature profile for numerous values of position-dependent heat reservoir parameter and temperature-dependent heat reservoir parameter , respectively, is shown in Figures 16 and 17, respectively, while the wall temperature profile is given in Figure 18 which illustrates that the temperature on the boundary layer decreases as a result of rising the power index .
Figures 19 and 20 show temperature profile for the various input values of oscillating and velocity slip parameters and , respectively. It is observed that, by increasing both and parameters, the thickness of the thermal boundary layer increases.
Figures 21–23 represent the gradient of temperature sketch for different inputs of physical constrains like oscillating, temperature, and velocity slip parameters, respectively. The influence of this physical parameter is observed as the temperature profile increases with the increasing value of the oscillating and velocity slip parameters, respectively, and the temperature gradient drops when the temperature slip parameter rises.
In this review, we have attempted to provide a glimpse of what we have studied from the stagnate point of magnetohydrodynamic flow movement and thermal convection in the presence of velocity slip, thermal slip, and nonlinear heat reservoir. We deduced some significant observations from these results given as follows:(i)By rising the power index, the velocity parameter rises, while in existence of magnetic field, a converse result is observed.(ii)Whether magnetic field exists or not, the velocity rises by increasing the power-law index.(iii)If the magnetic field value is zero, the temperature rises as the power index increases while falls when magnetic field is nonzero.(iv)As the Prandtl number increases, the temperature falls irrespective of the magnetic field.(v)In presence of uniform magnetic field, the temperature falls down as the parameters , , and increase. Also, the temperature rises when there is a variable magnetic field.(vi)The oscillating parameter λ decreases flow movement, velocity, variation of temperature in normal direction, skin friction, and heat transfer boundary layer.(vii)The velocity slip parameter increases the thermal boundary layer and gradient of temperature but decreases the flow movement, velocity (momentum), and skin friction of the boundary interface layer.(viii)The temperature slip parameter impacts merely on thermal interface layers which decreases the heat-convective boundary layer and so as reduces the gradient of temperature.
