Abstract

The present investigation aims to deliberate the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) dusty Casson nanofluid with variable heat source/sink and modified Fourier’s and Fick’s laws over a stretching cylinder. The novelty of the flow model is enhanced with additional effects of the Newtonian heating, activation energy, and an exothermic chemical reaction. In an exothermic chemical reaction, the energy of the reactants is higher than the end products. The solution to the formulated problem is attained numerically by employing the MATLAB software function bvp4c. The behavior of flow parameters versus involved profiles is discussed graphically at length. For large values of momentum dust particles, the velocity field for the fluid flow declines, whereas an opposite trend is perceived for the dust phase. An escalation is noticed for the Newtonian heating in the temperature profile for both the fluid and dust-particle phase. A comparison is also added with an already published work to check the validity of the envisioned problem.
