J. Heat Transfer 135(3), 031705 (Feb 11, 2013) (6 pages) Paper No: HT-12-1079; doi: 10.1115/1.4007891 History: Received March 02, 2012; Revised August 19, 2012

This paper presents an analysis for the unsteady mixed boundary-layer flow and radiation heat transfer of generalized Maxwell fluids toward an unsteady stretching permeable surface in presence of boundary slip and nonuniform heat source/sink. The governing partial differential equations are converted into nonlinear ordinary differential equations and analytical approximations of solutions are derived by homotopy analysis method (HAM). The effects of the unsteadiness parameter, nonuniform heat source/sink parameter, suction/injection parameter, thermal radiation parameter and slip parameter on the fluid flow, and heat transfer characteristics are shown graphically and analyzed.
