In this study, the two-dimensional Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) boundary layer of stagnation-point flow in a nanofluid in the presence of thermal radiation is investigated. Using a similarity transform, the Navier-Stokes equations are reduced to a set of nonlinear ordinary differential equations. The similarity equations are solved numerically for three types of nanoparticles, namely copper (Cu), alumina (Al2O3) and titania (TiO2) in water as the base fluid. The skin-friction coefficient and Nusselt number as well as the velocity and temperature profiles for some values of the governing parameters are presented graphically and discussed. Effects of the nanoparticle volume fraction on the flow and heat transfer characteristics are thoroughly examined.
