Abstract
The energy produced by the melting stretching disks surface has a wide range of commercial applications, including semi-conductor material preparation, magma solidification, permafrost melting, and frozen land refreezing, among others. In view of this, in the current communication we analyzed magnetohydrodynamic flow of Maxwell nanofluid between two parallel rotating disks. Nanofluids are important due to their astonishing properties in heat conduction flows and in the enhancement of electronic and manufacturing devices. Furthermore, the distinct tiny-sized particles and in the Maxwell water-based fluid for enhancing the heat transfer rate are analyzed. The heat equation is developed in the occurrence of thermal radiation. The influences of melting impacts are incorporated. The mathematical model is developed in the form of partial differential expressions then converted to ordinary differential equations by employing tool of similarity variables. Finite element method (FEM) is chosen for solving the nonlinear governing ordinary differential equations (ODEs) with necessary conditions. The consequence of flow parameters against the velocity profiles and heat transport field is considered. The noted novelty of this communication is to discuss the thermal transfer of Maxwell nanofluid model through double stretching disks with thermal radiation and melting phenomenon. Further, /water and /water are considered in the modeling.
