    • Abstract


      This study aims to report the boundary layer flow of nanofluid over an exponentially stretched sheet in the presence of velocity slip as well as thermal slip. Utilising similarity transformations, the governing momentum and temperature equations are converted into ordinary differential equations and then solved numerically by shooting technique. An interesting behaviour of the solution for the converted self-similar equations is noted: dual solutions are obtained for some particular range of values of the governing parameters for the flow past an extended sheet. A comparison is made between the boundary layer flow of Cu–water and $\rm{Fe_{3}O_{4}}$–water nanofluids. Both fluid velocity and temperature increase due to the enhancement in the velocity slip parameter. With the rising values of solid volume fraction, velocity diminishes but temperature increases.
