Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to develop a mathematical model featuring Brownian motion and thermophoresis. The idea of curved stretching subjected to time-dependent non-Newtonian (Sisko) fluid flow is introduced.

Design/methodology/approach

Shooting scheme is implemented to compute nonlinear systems.

Findings

Velocity profile of Sisko magnetonanofluid enhances for augmented values of curvature parameter.

Originality/value

To the best of the authors’ knowledge, no such analysis has yet been reported.
