We consider self-similar boundary layer flow of a micropolar fluid driven by a porous stretching sheet. For the limiting cases of large suction or injection, an order of magnitude analysis is used to obtain analytic results for the shear stress and the microrotation at the surface. Our analysis reveals how the wall shear stress is significantly affected by two of the parameters in the micropolar model and we indicate how our findings may be of use in technological applications involving micropolar flow.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
