This paper deals with the steady two-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) stagnation-point flow of nanofluid and heat transfer with thermal radiation past a stretching/shrinking sheet in the presence of injection are investigated numerically and simulated with Maple 18 software. Brownian motion and thermophoresis are included in employed model of nanofluid simultaneously. The system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations governing the flow is converted into a system of coupled higher order nonlinear ordinary differential equation by using similarity transformations. The results show that the flow field velocity, temperature and concentration profiles are influenced appreciably by the applied magnetic field, Brownian motion, heat radiation, porous parameter and thermophoresis particle deposition.
Key words: Magnetohydrodynamics, injection, stagnation point flow, heat transfer, Brownian motion, thermophoresis.
