In this article, we investigate the convective heat transfer of the two-dimensional unsteady squeezing flow past a Riga plate. To examine the heat transfer, Cattaneo-Christov heat flux model is used. Influence of entropy generation on heat transfer has been investigated numerically. With the help of suitable similarity transformation, the governing partial differential equations (PDEs) are converted into ordinary differential equations (ODEs). The obtained system of non-linear ordinary

To strengthen the reliability of the results obtained by the shooting method, the MATLAB built-in function bvp4c has been used. The graphs show the effect of different physical parameters for velocity, temperature, concentration and tables are presented to observe the behaviour of skin friction and sherwood number under the influence of certain physical parameters. It is observed that for increasing values of thermal relaxation parameter, the temperature profile increases and an opposite behaviour is shown for the concentration profile. Moreover, with an increase in the Brinkman number, the entropy generation increases.
