This paper investigates the hydromagnetic stagnation point flow of an incompressible viscous electrically conducting fluid towards a stretching sheet in the presence of radiation and viscous dissipation. The Newton-Raphson shooting method along with the fourth-order Runge-Kutta integration algorithm has been employed to tackle the third order, nonlinear boundary layer problem governing the flow. Numerical results for dimensionless local skin friction coefficient and the local Nusselt numbers are presented in tables while graphical results are presented for velocity and temperature profiles for various values of the controlling parameters. The results show that the heat transfer of a hydromagnetic fluid over a porous stretching surface subject to radiation and viscous dissipation can be controlled and a final product with desired characteristics can be achieved.
