Abstract

The colloidal analysis for H2O and EG (Ethylene Glycol) by considering the influence of radiative heat flux and viscous dissipation is not performed so far. This study is performed to fill up this gap. Therefore, the flow of water and ethylene glycol functionalized magnetite nanoparticles over a moving wedge is examined. For thermal enhancement, two different magnetite nanoparticles, namely CoFe 2 O 4 (Cobalt ferrite) and Mn ZnFe 2 O 4 ( Mn Zn ferrite), diluted in the base fluids. Self-similar flow model of a nonlinear nature, containing the volume fraction of nanoparticles is obtained by using compatible similarity variables. For mathematical treatment of the model, the Runge-Kutta scheme is utilized, coupled with shooting techniques. The results for flow characteristics and significant physical parameters are graphically examined. A comprehensive comparative analysis has been made, which proved the reliability of the study.
