Abstract

Mathematical modeling for magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) nonlinear convective flow of Jeffrey nanofluid over a nonlinear stretching sheet is introduced. Effect of thermal radiation is considered. Phenomena of heat and mass transfer is based through involvement of convective conditions. The Brownian motion and thermophoresis effects are deliberated in energy and concentration expressions. Dimensional nonlinear systems for momentum, energy and concentration are converted into dimensionless systems by invoking appropriate variables. Series solutions are acquired through convergence domains. Behavior of various physical variables on velocity, temperature and nanoparticle concentration are scrutinized graphically. Skin friction coefficient, local Nusselt and Sherwood numbers are calculated through numerical values. It is concluded that velocity field enhances for Deborah number while reverse situation is noticed regarding power index. Temperature and heat transfer rate are enhanced via thermal radiation. Moreover impact of Brownian motion on the concentration and local Sherwood number are quite reverse.
