Abstract

AbstractIn the present work, the problem of Hiemenz flow through a porous medium of a incompressible non-Newtonian Rivlin-Ericksen fluid with heat transfer is presented and newly developed analytic method, namely the homotopy analysis method (HAM) is employed to compute an approximation to the solution of the system of nonlinear differential equations governing the problem. This flow impinges normal to a plane wall with heat transfer. It has been attempted to show capabilities and wide-range applications of the homotopy analysis method in comparison with the numerical method in solving this problem. Also the convergence of the obtained HAM solution is discussed explicitly. Our reports consist of the effect of the porosity of the medium and the characteristics of the Non-Newtonian fluid on both the flow and heat.
