- A numerical study has been conducted to investigate the modelling of steady two-dimensional stagnation-point flow and diffusion of chemically reactive species of a viscous and incompressible fluid past a permeable quadratically stretching/ shrinking sheet. Similarity transformation has been used to reduce the governing nonlinear partial differential equations into a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations. The resulting equations are solved numerically using “bvp4c” function in MATLAB. Dual solutions are found for a certain range of the stretching/shrinking parameter. The effects of the governing parameters on the skin friction coefficient and the concentration gradient are discussed and illustrated graphically.
