This paper deals with boundary layer flow of Cu-water and Ag-water nanofluids past a stretching plate with suction and heat transfer with convective surface boundary condition in the presence of thermal radiation. This flow belongs to the boundary layer flow of Skiadis type. A closed form solution has been obtained for convective heat transfer under the given conditions. We study the flow field with suction on stretching surface, the effect of volume fraction of nano-sized particles of Cu in Cu-water and Ag in Ag-water nanofluids on the temperature field, and the effect of suction parameter on the convective heat transfer. Moreover, the skin friction and Nusselt number both have been calculated and the possible effect of related parameters has been studied.
