This paper focuses on the effect of MHD mixed convection flow of casson nanofluid past a stretching sheet in the presence of viscous dissipation, first order chemical reaction and heat source/sink. The profiles for the velocity, temperature and nanoparticle concentration depends on the parameters Casson fluid parameter β, concentration buoyancy parameter N, Hartman number M, radiation parameter R, Prandtl number Pr, the Schmidt number Sc, Brownian motion Nb, thermophoresis parameter Nt, Eckert number Ec, chemical reaction parameter γ the heat transfer Biot number γ1 and the mass transfer Biot number γ2. The constitute governing partial differential equation of flow, heat and mass transfer on considered flow are converted into nonlinear ordinary differential equations by employing suitable transformations and these transformed equations were solved by the Adam’s Moultan fourth order method with shooting technique. The various numerical tables are calculated and tabulated. Our results have been compared with the results of a previous study and found to be in an excellent agreement.


Keywords: Nano Fluid, viscous dissipation, Brownian motion, Thermophoresis, Stretching Sheet, chemical reaction.
