Paper Title:
Thermal Transport of an Electrically Conducting Fluid over a Stretching Sheet in Manufacturing Processes
  Abstract

The properties of the final product greatly depend on the cooling rate from the material surface in many manufacturing processes, such as stretching sheets or filaments that are extruded continuously from a die. Therefore, the thermal transport behavior may play an important role in such manufacturing processes. In this paper we present an analysis of momentum and thermal transport for the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow of an electrically conducting fluid over a stretching sheet with prescribed surface temperature. The effects of free convection, Joule heating and viscous dissipation are taken into consideration. The transformed governing equations are solved numerically for this non-similar coupled flow problem. To reveal the tendency of the solutions, typical results for velocity profiles, temperature distributions and the local Nusselt number are presented for different values of governing parameters.
