Nonlinear thermal radiation and magnetic field effects on the flow Carreau nanofluid with convective conditions

Main features of the present analysis is to investigate the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) nonlinear mixed convection flow of Carreau nanofluid. Flow is due to stretching sheet with thermal and solutal convective conditions. Intention in present analysis is to develop a model for nanomaterial. The nonlinear ordinary differential systems are obtained. Homotopy algorithm leads to solutions development. Velocity, temperature, nanoparticles concentration, surface drag force and heat and mass transfer rate are displayed and argued. It is revealed that qualitative behaviors of velocity and layer thickness are reverse for material and magnetic parameters. Temperature field and heat transfer rate are similar observation for thermal Biot numbers. Moreover qualitative behaviors of nanoparticles concentration and mass transfer rate are reverse for larger Brownian motion.
