Present work studies the well-known Sakiadis flow of Maxwell fluid along a moving plate in a calm fluid by considering the Cattaneo-Christov heat flux model. This recently developed model has the tendency to describe the characteristics of relaxation time for heat flux. Some numerical local similarity solutions of the associated problem are computed by two approaches namely (i) the shooting method and (ii) the Keller-box method. The solution is dependent on some interesting parameters which include the viscoelastic fluid parameter , the dimensionless thermal relaxation time and the Prandtl number Pr. Our simulations indicate that variation in the temperature distribution with an increase in local Deborah number is non-monotonic. The results for the Fourier’s heat conduction law can be obtained as special cases of the present study.
