    • Abstract


      This article communicates the numerical consideration of 3D Carreau liquid flow under the impact of chemical responses over a stretched surface. Moreover, the heat transfer exploration is carried out with a view to improve the heat flux relation. This phenomenon is established upon the theory of Cattaneo–Christov heat flux relation that contributes by the thermal relaxation. On exploitation of an appropriate transformation a system of nonlinear ODEs is attained and then elucidated numerically by means of bvp4c scheme. The descriptions of temperature and concentration fields equivalent to the frequent somatic parameters are graphically scrutinised.Our analysis carries that the concentration of the Carreau liquid displays similar tendency and decline as theheterogeneous–homogeneous reaction parameters ($k_{2}, k_{1}$) augment. Furthermore, it is notable that for shear thinning ($n$ & lt; 1) liquid, the influence of local Weissenberg numbers ($We_{1}, We_{2}$) are absolutely conflicting compared with the instance of shear thickening ($n$ & gt; 1) liquid. Additionally, validation of numerical results is done via benchmarking with previously stated limiting cases with two different schemes namely, homotopy analysis method (HAM) and bvp4c scheme. These comparisons initiate a superb correspondence with these outcomes.
