ABSTRACT
The MHD boundary layer flow of a Maxwell nanofluid over a permeable vertical surface is studied. The governing nonlinear partial differential equations are transformed into ordinary differential equations using similarity transformation and solved numerically using a shooting method. The effects of suction/injection on the velocity, temperature and concentration profiles as well as the heat transfer characteristics are discussed and graphically presented. It is found that the suction parameter increase the velocity profiles, while the opposite behavior for the injection parameter.
