Since 1991, from the beginning of the carbon nanotube era, this has been a focus point for investigation due to its synthetic and simple nature. Unique properties like good stiffness, high surface area, and resilience of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been investigated in many engineering applications such as hydrogen storage, composite material, energy storage, electrochemical super-capacitors, transistors, sensors, and field-emitting devices. Keeping in view these applications, we investigate single and multi-walled CNTs nanofluid flow having water as the base fluid between parallel and horizontal rotating plates with microstructure and inertial properties. The thermal radiation effect is considered for variable phenomenon of heat generation/consumption. The principal equations are first symmetrically transformed to a system of nonlinear coupled ordinary differential equations (ODEs), and then, Homotopy Analysis Technique (HAM) and numerical method are employed for solving these coupled equations. The obtained analytical and numerical results are explained graphically and through different tables. The HAM and numerical results show an excellent agreement. The Skin friction and the Nusselt number are numerically calculated and then analyzed with the already published results, and these results are found to be in agreement with one another. The impact of important parameters are shown graphically. View Full-Text
