Mixed convective flow of CNTs nanofluid subject to varying viscosity and reactions

In this analysis, it is considered that two-dimensional incompressible mixed convective flow of CNTs nanoliquid by stretchable cylinder. The liquid flow is caused by stretching cylinder. The viscosity of base liquid varies with the variation of temperature. Base liquid contains homogeneous combination of CNTs particles. Further more, CNTs particles and base liquid are in thermal equilibrium. Linearly stretching cylinder ((i.e.quad w_e = frac{U_0z}{l})) is along axial direction ((z-axis)) while liquid is assumed to deform in radial direction ((r-axis)). Figure 1 addresses the geometric configuration of flow problem. Heat transfer characteristics are explored via heat generation/absorption, viscous dissipation and Joule heating. Diffusion species are accounted in base liquid for…
