Abstract

In particular, the Cattaneo-Christov heat flux model and buoyancy effect have been taken into account in the numerical simulation of time-based unsteady flow of Casson-Williamson nanofluid carried over a magnetic dipole enabled curved stretching sheet with thermal radiation, Joule heating, an exponential heat source, homo-heterogenic reactions, slip, and melting heat peripheral conditions. The specified flow's partial differential equations are converted to straightforward ordinary differential equations using similarity transformations. The Runge–Kutta–Fehlberg 4-5th order tool has been used to generate solution graphs for the problem under consideration. Other parameters are simultaneously set to their default settings while displaying the solution graphs for all flow defining profiles with the specific parameters. Each produced graph has been the subject of an extensive debate. Here, the analysis shows that the thermal buoyancy component boosts the velocity regime. The investigation also revealed that the melting parameter and radiation parameter had counterintuitive effects on the thermal profile. The velocity distribution of nanofluid flow is also slowed down by the ferrohydrodynamic interaction parameter. The surface drag has decreased as the unsteadiness parameter has increased, while the rate of heat transfer has increased. To further demonstrate the flow and heat distribution, graphical representations of streamlines and isotherms have been offered.
