numerically examine the impact of nanoparticles on an unsteady flow of a Williamson fluid past

What is it about?

The impacts of such parameters on the velocity profile, temperature distribution and the concentration of nanoparticles are examined through graphs and tables. The results point out that multiple solutions are achieved for certain values of the suction parameter and for decelerating flow, while for accelerating flow, the solution is unique. Further, the non-Newtonian parameter reduces the fluid velocity and boosts the temperature distribution and concentration of nanoparticles in the first solution, while the reverse drift is noticed in the second solution.

Why is it important?

The current results may be used in many applications such as biomedicine, industrial, electronics and solar energy.
