AB - A numerical study of unsteady hydromagnetic flow of Casson liquid passed through the oscillatory moving surface is presented. The interaction of radiation term is reported in the energy equation. The flow is generated by the rapid moveĀ¬ment of elastic surface that stretched back and forth periodically. The number of variables is reduced by introducing dimensionless variables. An implicit technique developed on finite difference algorithm is implemented to the system of PDE. The impact of various parameters like Casson liquid parameter, the oscillation frequency and stretching rate ratio, Hartmann number and effective Prandtl number are shown through various graphs. The observation indicates that the amplitude of the velocity declines by enhancing Casson liquid parameter, oscillation frequency and stretching rate ratio and Hartmann number. The temperature declines by increasing Casson fluid parameter and effective Prandtl number. The results also indicate that the time-series of local Nusselt number increases by enhancing effective Prandtl number.
