Abstract

The goal of this study is to investigate the rotating Maxwell nanoliquid flow incorporating gyrotactic microbes with Newtonian heating and irregular heat source sink. The motion of the flow is induced due to linearly unidirectional elongated surface. The uniqueness of the flow is enhanced by the inclusion of additional phenomenon of higher order chemical reaction incorporated with Darcy Forchheimer flow, Fourier and Fick law. Numerical solution of the formulated problem is developed via bvp4c function in MATLAB. The influence of the embroiled parameters on the flow distribution is demonstrated through various graphs and tables. It is noticed that fluid velocity declines on incrementing the rotation parameter. An upsurge in thermal field is portrayed on augmenting the Newtonian heating. Comparative analysis of the results of the proposed model with previous published research is included which confirms the validity of the current model.
