Abstract

© 2019 by the authors. A novel mathematical model is envisioned discussing the magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) steady incompressible nanofluid flow with uniform free stream velocity over a thin needle in a permeable media. The flow analysis is performed in attendance of melting heat transfer with nonlinear chemical reaction. The novel model is examined at the surface with the slip boundary condition. The compatible transformations are affianced to attain the dimensionless equations system. Illustrations depicting the impact of distinct parameters versus all involved profiles are supported by requisite deliberations. It is perceived that the melting heat parameter has a declining effect on temperature profile while radial velocity enhances due to melting.
