Recently, nanoparticles have supplied diverse challenges in the area of science. The nanoparticles suspended in several conventional fluids can convert the fluids flow and heat transmission features. In this investigation, the mathematical approach is utilized to explore the magnetohydrodynamics micropolar-nanofluid flow through a truncated porous cone. In this mathematical model, non-linear radiation and suction/injection phenomena are also scrutinized with the Tiwari-Das nanoliquid pattern. The designed system of the mathematical model of the boundary value problem is converted to a set of dimensionless non-similar equations applying convenient transformations. In this study, kerosene oil is selected as the base fluid, while the nanoparticles of Fe3O4 are utilized to promote the heat transmission rate. The problem is solved numerically using the Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg method (RKF45). It is demonstrated that an enhancement in the pertinent parameters improves the heat transmission rate. View Full-Text
