Abstract

The main concern of this paper is to analyze the nonlinearity of the Grashof numbers (thermal and diffusion) on the Williamson fluid flow across a stretching sheet with non-uniform thickness with the consideration of melting heat transfer. The modelled equations are non-dimensionalized with the utilization of similarity transformations. We used shooting technique based on Runge-Kutta 4th order method to unriddle the ensuing equations. Influence of key parameters on the common profiles i.e., velocity, temperature and concentration are deliberated with the support of graphs. And also, we examined friction factor, local Sherwood and Nusselt numbers against the same parameters and displayed the results in tabular form. It is seen that Weissenberg number and wall thickness parameters rise the magnitude of friction factor. It is additionally qualified to specify that the temperature and concentration profiles looking high in the absence of melting parameter contrasted with the presence of melting parameter
