Abstract

—Present study considers the mathematical modeling of free convection boundary layer flow and heat transfer on a solid sphere with viscous dissipation and thermal radiation effects. The transformed partial differential equations are solved numerically by using the Keller-box method. Numerical solutions are obtained for the reduced Nusselt number, the local skin friction coefficient, the velocity and temperature profiles. The features of the flow characteristics for various values of the Prandtl number, radiation parameter and Eckert number are discussed. It is worth mentioning that the results are obtained until x = 180◦. This is contrary to the previous report where the separation boundary layer flow occurs after x = 120◦. The results in this paper is important for the researchers working in the area of boundary layer flow and this can be used as reference and also as complement for comparison purposes in the future.
