dc.description.abstract In this thesis, we study the oblique stagnation point flow of a Newtonian fluid on different types of boundaries such as a vertical surface, stretching sheet and shrinking sheet. This study is also examined the effects of heat transfer, chemical reaction, forced convection and mixed convection on oblique stagnation point flow. All of the above mentioned physical problems are transformed into mathematical model using the governing equations of the fluid flow. These equations are then transformed into the set of nonlinear differential equations. The solutions of the transformed equations are obtained using Matlab. In order to check the accuracy of the solution method, comparison is made with the previous results. Also, different observations are made using graphs and tables for all the problems under consideration. en_US
