MHD Mixed Convection Flow of Burgers’ Fluid in a Thermally Stratified Medium

This attempt addresses the effects of nonlinear thermal radiation and magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) in mixed convection flow of Burgers’ fluid over a stretching sheet embedded in a thermally stratified medium. A transformation method has been employed to reduce the nonlinear partial differential equation (PDE) into the nonlinear ordinary differential equation (ODE). The resulting nonlinear coupled ordinary differential equations are solved for the series solutions. Convergence of derived series solutions is explicitly explored. Physical interpretation of different parameters through graphs and numerical values of local Nusselt number is discussed.
