Stagnation-point flow toward a stretching sheet with slip effects has been investigated. Unlike most classical works, Cattaneo–Christov heat flux model is utilized for the formulation of the energy equation instead of Fourier's law of heat conduction. A similarity transformation technique is adopted to reduce partial differential equations into a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations. Numerical solutions are obtained by using shooting method to explore the features of various parameters for the velocity and temperature distributions. The obtained results are graphically presented and analyzed. It is found that fluid temperature has a converse relationship with the thermal relaxation time. A comparison of Cattaneo–Christov heat flux model and Fourier's law is also presented.
