Abstract

This work considers the thermal analysis of an incompressible third-grade magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) steady fluid flow in a pipe with variable fluid properties; together with convective cooling at the walls. The momentum and energy equations regulating the flow are solved numerically by using the RungeKutta integration algorithm, combined with shooting technique. The solutions obtained are used to determine the numerical procedures for bifurcation analysis, skin-friction, heat transfer rate and thermal stability to predict the safe and unsafe situations of hazard prevention.
