  • Abstract

    The dual solutions in the boundary layer flow and heat transfer in the presence of thermal radiation is quantitatively studied. The governing partial differential equations are derived into a system of ordinary differential equations using a similarity transformation, and afterward numerical solution obtained by a shooting technique. Dual solutions execute within a certain range of opposing and assisting flow which related to these numerical solutions. The similarity equations have two branches, upper or lower branch solutions, within a certain range of the mixed convection parameters. Further numerical results exist in our observations which enable to discuss the features of the respective solutions.
