Abstract: A numerical study of MHD mixed convection boundary layer flow at an exponentially stretching sheet with suction/injection has been presented here. Similarity solutions of the problem are obtained by the use of Nachtsheim-Swigert Scheme. Some of the important observations of the analysis are – Skin friction increases while Nusselt number diminishes as Prandtl number increases. In the suction region both Skin friction and Nusselt number increase in assisting flow case, while in the opposing flow case skin friction decreases and Nusselt number increases.
Keywords: MHD, Mixed Convection, Stretching Surface, NS-Scheme.
