T. Hayat, Zakir Hussain, M. Farooq*, A. Alsaedi and Mustafa Obaid Thermally Stratified Stagnation Point Flow of an Oldroyd-B Fluid Abstract: This paper is devoted to examine the thermally stratified mixed convection flow of an Oldroyd-B fluid. The stagnation point flow towards a stretching surface is discussed. The boundary layer flow and energy equations are employed. Resulting partial differential systems are converted into the ordinary differential systems. Conver- gent series solutions for velocity and temperature are de- veloped and analyzed. Numerical

Mukhopadhyay [1] analyzed the boundary layer flow and heat transfer over a stretching cylinder under the influence of uniform magnetic field and slip condition. Turkyilmazoglu [2] investigated the three-dimensional flow of electrically conducting viscous fluid induced by a stretching rotating disk. Bhattacharyya [3] examined the unsteady stagnation point flow caused by shrinking/stretching sheet. Rashidi et al.

efforts to examine the solutions for the equations which govern the flow over a rotating disk. In 1970, Alfven [ 13 ] was the first person who used the term of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD). Later, Turkyilmazoglu [ 14 ] analyzed the three dimensional stagnation point flow of an electrically conducting fluid occurring as a result of stretchable rotating disk and also taking magnetic field effect into account. The effect of an external uniform magnetic field on the fluid flow over a disk surface with heat transfer characteristics was determined in [ 15 , 16 ]. A great extent

during the convection of nanofluids. He concluded that nanofluids contribute in an upsurge of heat transfer coefficient in the turbulent region because of the deviation of thermophysical properties within the boundary layer affected by thermopohoresis and temperature gradient. The Brownian motion and the thermophoresis effect on the slip flow of alumina/water nanofluid inside a circular microchannel in the presence of a magnetic field were examined by Malvandi and Ganji [ 10 ]. The stagnation-point flow of a fluid past a stretching sheet has been given much attention

S. Nadeem*, M. A. Sadiq, Jung-il Choi and Changhoon Lee Exponentially Stagnation Point Flow of Non-Newtonian Nanofluid over an Exponentially Stretching Surface Abstract: The steady stagnation point flow of Jeffrey nanofluid over an exponential stretching surface under the boundary layer assumptions is discussed analytically. The transport equations include the effects of Brownian motion and thermophoresis. The boundary layer coupled partial differential equations of Jeffrey nanofluid are sim- plified with the help of suitable semi-similar transforma- tions. The

1 Introduction In the history of fluid dynamics, considerable attention has been given to the study of stagnation-point flows because of their importance in many engineering and industrial processes. The applications of these jet-like flows impinging on the surface include the annealing of metals and cooling in grinding processes, gas turbine blades, and photovoltaic cells. The process of surface cleaning, wire coating, and finishing of metal strips depends on the shear stress induced by the impinging fluids. In a stagnation-point flow, the fluid impinges on the
