In addition, graphical illustration of the function which describes the immediate layer of Casson fluid next to an upper horizontal surface of a paraboloid of revolution y = A[(x + b).sup.(1-m)/2] against x (i.e., A =1 and b = 0.8) at various values of m less than 1 and stretching velocity at the wall [U.sub.w] = [U.sub.o] [(x + b).sup.m] when stretching rate (i.e., [U.sub.o] = 3) are presented in Figure 6.
(5) In the case of Casson fluid flow over an upper horizontal thermally stratified melting surface of a paraboloid of revolution, decrease in horizontal velocity is guaranteed with an increase and [beta].
(6) With an increase in the magnitude of m, the influence of stretching velocity at the wall [U.sub.w] = [U.sub.o][(x + b).sup.m] on horizontal and vertical velocities is stronger than that of y = A[(x + b).sup.(1-m)/2] which describes the immediate fluid's layer next to upper horizontal surface of a paraboloid of revolution due to melting heat transfer.
An extension of the present study to the case of Williamson and Prandtl fluid flow over an upper horizontal thermally stratified melting surface of a paraboloid of revolution is hereby recommended.
