The research numerically analyzed the effect of heat generation and magneto-hydrodynamics (MHD) on unsteady Casson non-Newtonian hybrid nanofluid flow over a stretching porous medium. Further effects involved in the main model are vertically applied magnetic flux, and viscous dissipation effect. The Finite Difference method (FDM) was used to solve the ordinary differential equations (ODEs) with MAPLE 18.0 software. The results were visualized using tables and graph to illustrate the effects of fluid physical quantities, fluid momentum, energy distribution, hybrid nanoparticles concentration, and velocity profiles for various applicable values of dimensionless numbers. The numerical outcomes of the effects of different physical parameters of the fluid were demonstrated and it was noticed that velocity profile increased as the thermal Grashof numbers increased as a result of an increase in buoyant force caused by convent heat generation through the upper plate of the fluid and reduced as Casson fluid parameter increased because of decrease in magnetic and heat dissipation parameters. The research work is economically valuable for mechanical engineers, physicists, chemists, marine engineers, and other fields since its applications brings about their operational improvement.
