Fundamental goal of the present communication is to analyse the viscous electrically conducting nanofluid flow near a stagnation region past a stretching sheet. Investigation of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are done and water is employed as the base fluid. Combinations of the effects of heat generation, thermal radiation, viscous dissipation and Joule heating are considered. Mathematical modelling and examinations are done in the presence of magnetic field. Similarity variables are introduced to convert nonlinear partial differential equations into nonlinear ordinary differential equations. Numerical solutions of the governing modelled equations are collected by applying Galerkin finite-element method. Impacts of distinct influential parameters such as velocity ratio parameter, solid volume fraction, magnetic parameter, radiation parameter, heat generation parameter and Brinkmann number on velocity, temperature, surface shear stress and surface heat flux are obtained and discussed. Furthermore, comparison of the results of the current analysis is made with the earlier published data.
