Abstract

The present article examines Soret and Dufour effects on the three-dimensional mixed convective flow of an Oldroyd-B nanoliquid. The flow is caused due to bidirectional stretching of the surface in the presence of an induced magnetic field and heat generation/absorption. Besides, concentration and thermal buoyancy impacts are inspected. The velocity slip, convective and zero nanoparticle mass flux boundary condition at the surfaceare taken into account. Nonlinear system of equations which are highly coupled is solved via optimal homotopy algorithm. The influence of pertinent parameters on velocity, temperature, and concentration are analyzed graphically. The impact of Dufour number is quite substantial on temperature whereas Soret number increases the concentration. To see the legitimacy of the present work, the present results are compared with the results available in the literature and noted an excellent agreement for the limiting cases.
