RÉSUMÉ

In this paper, we investigate incompressible flow of a viscoelastic nanofluid past a wedge in the presence of buoyancy force effects. The momentum, energy and mass equations are reduced to coupled non-linear ordinary differential equations by using suitable similarity transformations. The coupled ordinary non-linear equations are solved by using variational finite element method. The profiles of velocity, temperature and nanoparticle volume fraction are presented through graphs for various values of physical parameters also the skin-friction co-efficient and local Nusselt number are calculated.
