AB - This framework presents heat transfer analysis for swirling flow of viscoplastic fluid bounded by a permeable rotating disk. Problem formulation is made through constitutive relations of Bingham fluid model. Viscous dissipation effects are pre-served in the mathematical model. Entropy production analysis is made which is yet to be explored for the von-Karman flow of non-Newtonian fluids. Having found the similarity equations, these have been dealt numerically for broad parameter values. The solutions are remarkably influenced by wall suction parameter and Bingham number which measures the fluid yield stress. Akin to earlier numerical results, thermal boundary-layer suppresses upon increasing wall suction velocity. Thermal penetration depth is much enhanced when fluid yield stress becomes large. Higher heat transfer rate can be accomplished by employing higher suction velocity at the disk. However, deterioration in heat transfer is anticipated as fluid yield stress enlarges. Current numerical results are in perfect line with those of an existing article in limiting sense.
