Abstract

The under-consideration article mainly focuses an unsteady three-dimensional Maxwell bio-convective nanomaterial liquid flow towards an exponentially expanding surface with the influence of chemical reaction slip condition. The feature of heat transport is achieving in the existenceof convective boundary condition and variable thermal conductivity. With the help of similarity variables, the flow form of equations is turned into a nonlinear form of coupled ODEs. The numerical solutions are calculated by adopting bvp4c function of MATLAB. Impact of distinct characteristics on the temperature, velocity microorganism and concentration field is graphically evaluated. Moreover, physical quantities are observed via graphs and tabulated data in details. It has been seen by the observation that the involvement of unsteadiness parameter restricts the change of laminar to turbulent flow. Further, for increasing velocity slip parameter velocity component in both directions shows lessening behavior. The Nusselt number exhibits diminishing behavior for larger values of Deborah number, and it shows the opposite behavior for larger values of convective parameter.
