The purpose of this paper is to study the effects of nanoparticles on mixed convection flow of power law fluid. The shear thinning fluid is considered as base fluid. The nanoparticles of copper for nanofluid are taken into account. To analysis the flow and temperature behavior, various mass concentrations of polyvinyl alcohol in water, different sizes and concentrations of nanoparticles are used. The effects of nanoparticle concentrations on shear stress, heat flux and thermal resistance are also presented.
