  • Title: Entropy Generation Analysis for Flow of Non Newtonian Fluid over a Stretching Surface with Convective Condition
  • Abstract:

    The present study concerns with the first and second law analyses for flow of Maxwell fluid with bounded by a stretching surface with convective boundary conditions. Entropy generation equation is first derived as a function of velocity and temperature gradients and then non-dimensionalized using geometrical and physical flow field-dependent parameters. The longitudinal velocity profile, temperature distribution, and entropy generation number are computed. The effects of physical flow parameters such as Deborah number, suction parameter, Biot number, Reynolds number, and Brinkman number on the longitudinal velocity, temperature gradient and also entropy generation number are checked and discussed. The path for minimizing the entropy is also proposed.
