Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this study is to analyze the entropy generation in magnetohydrodynamics stagnation point mixed convection flow of Carreau nanofluid through porous medium.

Design/methodology/approach

The system is solved using the homotopy scheme.

Findings

Minimizing radiation, magnetic, permeability and temperature difference parameters responds to minimizing entropy production.

Originality/value

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