Graphical Abstract:


Objective: In this paper, we present a rheological analysis of suspended single-walled Carbon nanotubes in a Walters' B fluid.

Methods: We assume that the viscosity varies exponentially as a function of the temperature use the Reynolds model of viscosity for the study. A variable thermal conductivity is also assumed along with buoyancy, magnetic field, viscous dissipation and a convective boundary condition. The system of nonlinear coupled equations is solved using the spectral local linearization method.

Results: Our solutions are validated using through comparison with previously published results for a given set of conditions.

Conclusion: The study finds that good agreement is achieved.

Keywords: Rheological analysis, Walters`B fluid, single-walled carbon nanotubes, spectral local linearization method, viscosity, nanoformulation.
