Abstract

This investigation is based on the phenomenon of quadratic thermal convection in Magneto-Casson fluid flow induced by stretchy material with tiny particles and viscous dissipation effects. The study aims to understand and optimize the complex behaviour of fluid flow and heat transfer in this system, which has significant implications for engineering and industrial applications. The Magneto-Casson fluid, characterized by its non-Newtonian behaviour and yield stress, interacts with stretchy material and tiny particles, introducing unique flow characteristics and thermal properties. Viscous dissipation, resulting from internal friction, further influences the convective heat transfer process. Mathematical models are developed and solved by employing a numerical technique through the Runge-Kutta Fehlberg scheme coupled with the shooting method to investigate these phenomena comprehensively. The results are deliberated using several graphs on the dimensionless profiles. The results showed that there is a decline in the momentum boundary film as the magnetic field improves due to the effect of the Lorentz force. Also, an increase in the Casson fluid term raises the viscosity and thereby resists the fluid motion.
