Nanofluids are used as coolants in heat transport devices like heat exchangers, radiators, and electronic cooling systems (like a flat plate) because of their improved thermal properties. The preeminent perspective of this study is to highlight the influence of combined convection on heat transfer and pseudoplastic non-Newtonian nanofluid flow towards an extendable Riga surface. Buongiorno model is incorporated in the present study to tackle a diverse range of Reynolds numbers and to analyze

By the use of the boundary layer principle, the compact form of flow equations is transformed into component forms. The modeled system is numerically simulated. The effects of various physical parameters on skin friction, mass transfer, and thermal energy are numerically computed. Fluctuations of velocity increased when modified Hartmann number and mixed convection parameter are boosted, where it collapses for Weissenberg number and width parameter. It can be revealed that the temperature curve gets down if modified Hartmann number, mixed convection, and buoyancy ratio parameters upgrade. Concentration patterns diminish when there is an incline in width parameter and Lewis number; on the other hand, it went upward for Brownian motion parameter, modified Hartmann, and Prandtl number.
