In this paper, mixed convection stagnation point flow of nanofluids over a stretching/shrinking surface is studied numerically in the presence of thermal radiation and viscous dissipation. The governing boundary layer equations are transformed into a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations, by using a similarity transformation, which are then solved numerically using a fifth-order Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg method with shooting technique. The effects of various physical parameters are analyzed and discussed. Computed results are presented in graphical and tabular forms. It is found that the Richardson number, thermal radiation and internal heat generation/absorption have interesting and significant effects on skin-friction and local Nusselt number for all the three types of nanofluids.
