Abstract

A mathematical model for nonlinear quadratic convection with non-Fourier heat flux in coating boundary layer flow of a Maxwell viscoelastic fluid is presented. Nonlinear quadratic thermal radiation and heat source/sink effects are also considered. The transformations of Lie symmetry are employed. The resultant nonlinear differential equations with defined boundary conditions are numerically solved using the spectral relaxation technique (SRM), a robust computational methodology. Graphical visualization of the velocity and temperature profiles is included for a range of different emerging parameters. For skin friction and the Nusselt number, numerical data is also provided. There is a very strong correlation between the outcomes of the current study and those published in the literature. Higher values of the nonlinear thermal radiation, mixed convection, thermal conductivity, nonlinear convection, and heat source/generation parameters increase temperature as well as the thickness of the thermal boundary layer. However, a higher Prandtl number, thermal relaxation parameter, and heat sink/absorption parameter all reduce temperature. Deborah number causes velocity to be raised (and momentum boundary layer thickness to be lowered), whereas raising nonlinear mixed convection parameter causes velocity to be decreased (and momentum boundary layer thickness to be increased), and a velocity overshoot is calculated. The models are applicable to simulations of hightemperature polymeric coatings in material processing.
