The foremost aim of the present paper is to explore the impact of heat transport phenomenon in a ferrofluid via magnetic dipole. Three distinct ferrite nanoparticles are discussed in the present study with water as the base fluid. Magnetic dipole existing in ferrite nanoparticles plays a significant role in controlling the momentum and thermal boundary layers. The partial differential equations (PDEs) are changed into nonlinear coupled ordinary differential equation (ODEs) by utilising similar transformations. Flow occurs due to linear stretching sheet. For the evaluation of heat flux, Fourier’s law of heat conduction is employed. Effects of rising parameters on the magneto-thermomechanical coupling are examined numerically. The results indicate that the property of magneto-thermomechanical cooperation slows the motion of liquid particles, and accordingly, strengthen the heat transfer rate at the surface and skin friction coefficient. Further, Nusselt number enhances with larger solid volume fraction. A magnificent comparison with accessible results for definite cases has been made.
