AKOLADE, M. T.; IDOWU, A. S.; FALODUN, B. O.  and  ABUBAKAR, J. U.. The paradox of heat conduction, influence of variable viscosity, and thermal conductivity on magnetized dissipative Casson fluid with stratification models. Proyecciones (Antofagasta) [online]. 2021, vol.40, n.6, pp.1657-1682. ISSN 0716-0917.

The boundary layer flow of temperature-dependent variable thermal conductivity and dynamic viscosity on flow, heat, and mass transfer of magnetized and dissipative Casson fluid over a slenderized stretching sheet has been studied. The model explores the Cattaneo-Christov heat flux paradox instead of the Fourier’s law plus the stratifications impact. The variable temperature-dependent plastic dynamic viscosity and thermal conductivity were assumed to vary as a linear function of temperature. The governing systems of equations in PDEs were transformed into non-linear ordinary differential equations using the suitable similarity transformations, hence the approximate solutions were obtained using Chebyshev Spectral Collocation Method (CSCM). Effects of pertinent flow parameters on concentration, temperature, and velocity profiles are presented graphically and tabled, therein, thermal relaxation and wall thickness parameters slow down the distribution of the flowing fluid. A rise in Casson parameter, temperature-dependent thermal conductivity, and velocity power index parameter increases the skin friction thus leading to a decrease in energy and mass gradient at the wall, also, temperature gradient attain maximum within 0.2 - 1.0 variation of Casson parameter.

Keywords : Casson fluid; Cattaneo-Christov; MHD; Spectral collocation method; Stratifications.
