Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate the flow of two distinct nanofluids over a stretching surface in a porous medium with Marangoni convection. This investigation is studied under the effect of thermal radiation. Here, we have considered Fe3O4 and ZrO2 nanosized particles suspended in engine oil (EO) base fluid. For the numerical simulation of the flow, the fourth-order Runge-Kutta method and suitable similarity solutions were used. Numerical solutions with graphical representation are presented. Fe3O4/EO nanofluid is more significant in the cooling process in comparison to ZrO2/EO nanofluid. With increased radiation and temperature ratio parameters, a decrement in the temperature field has been noticed for both nanofluids. For increased values of volume friction parameter, a decrement is noticed for velocity profile and increment is noted for temperature profiles for both nanofluids. Also, a reduced velocity profile can be obtained with increased porosity parameter.
