Abstract (provisional)

In this study, the numerical solution of stagnation point flow over a stretching surface, with convective boundary conditions is considered. The transformed boundary layer equations are solved numerically using the Shooting method. Numerical solutions are obtained for the local heat transfer coefficient, the surface temperature as well as the velocity and temperature profiles. The features of the flow and heat transfer characteristics for various values of the Prandtl number, stretching parameter and conjugate parameter are analyzed and discussed.
