Micropolar flow over a porous stretching sheet with strong suction or injection
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.
