    • Abstract


      This study reports the chemically reacting flow of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) over a stretchable curved sheet. The flow is initialised due to a stretched surface. A heat source is present. Water is considered as the base liquid. The vital interest of this work is that heat phenomenon is studied via melting heat transfer. Xue relation of nanoliquid is implemented to explain the properties of both single- and multiwall CNTs. Mathematical systems (partial differential equations) for the flow field are obtained. Appropriate transformations are utilised in order to transform partial differential systems into nonlinear ordinary differential systems. Further, these systems are solved numerically. Variations in flow, temperature, concentration, skin friction coefficient and Nusselt number via the involved influential variables are illustrated graphically.
