  4. Abstract:
  5. Hybrid nanofluid gains attention of scientists due to its dynamic properties in various fields, and thus, hybrid nanofluids can be taken as an innovative form of nanofluids. Even though analysts acquire tremendous results in the field of hybrid nanofluids but yet no study has been carried out to predict magnetohydrodynamic effects in such fluid models. In this present analysis, influence of MHD has been investigated for the micro hybrid nanofluid over a stretched surface under convective conditions. Combine boundary layer equations for the flow have been altered into a suitable form via boundary layer approximations. Further, complete nonlinear system of equations has been numerically solved via BVP-4C method. Interesting results have been demonstrated for an exponentially stretched surface and expressed in the form of shear stress and rate of heat transfer. Results have also been visualized in the form of streamlines and isotherms. This study reveals after observing the numeric values of skin friction and Nusselt number that micropolar hybrid nanofluid models have greater heat transfer rate as compared to nanofluids. © 2021 World Scientific Publishing Company
