## Abstract

A mathematical model for magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) viscoelastic nanofluid flow approaching a linear horizontal circular cylinder has been constructed. The cylinder with constant heat flux is illustrated in the analysis wit magnetic field. We used the Tiwari and Das Nanofluid model in this analysis to learn more about nanofluid effects, where sodium carboxymethyl cellulose with nanoparticles of copper (Cu) was selected as a based fuid. Suitable transformations are used to turn dimensional linear equations into dimensionless expressions. To address the governing dimensionless issues, the Keller box method approach is implemented and executed. The effects of a few chosen factors on flow and heat transmission are investigated. The coefficients of skin friction and heat transmission are provided and analysed. The acquired findings are compared to the existing data in the limiting scenario, and there is a lot of consistency. It was found that velocity, temperature, skin friction and heat transfer coefficients of viscoelastic nanofluid depend strongly on viscosity and thermal conductivity together with magnetic field.
