Abstract


This study aims at considering the properties of heat transfer and magneto-hydrodynamics (MHD) Casson nanofluid at the existence of free convection boundary layer flow with Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) suspended in human blood/water as based fluid on a stretching sheet. Two types of CNTs nanoparticles, single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and multi walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs), are taken into account. The governing partial differential equations are transformed to partial differential equations using similar transformation, then solved numerically by an implicit finite difference scheme known as Keller-box method (KBM). The results for physical quantities, the local skin friction, and local Nusselt number, as well as temperature and velocity, are discussed under the magnetic nanofluid Casson parameters. This work is compared with recently published results on the Newtonian fluid as a special case and shows very good agreement.
