Objective: In this paper, we present a rheological analysis of suspended single-walled Carbon nanotubes in a Walters' B fluid.
Methods: We assume that the viscosity varies exponentially as a function of the temperature use the Reynolds model of viscosity for the study. A variable thermal conductivity is also assumed along with buoyancy, magnetic field, viscous dissipation and a convective boundary condition. The system of nonlinear coupled equations is solved using the spectral local linearization method.
Results: Our solutions are validated using through comparison with previously published results for a given set of conditions.
Conclusion: The study finds that good agreement is achieved.
