This article presents the effect of thermal radiation on MHD boundary layer flow of tangent hyperbolic fluid with nanoparticles past an inclined stretching sheet with heat source/sink and convective boundary condition. Condition of zero normal flux of nanoparticles at the wall is used for the concentration boundary condition, which is the current topic that have yet to be studied extensively. The partial differential systems are reduced to ordinary differential systems by using appropriate similarity transformations. The reduced systems are solved numerically by Runge-Kutta fourth order method with shooting technique. The velocity, temperature and nanoparticle volume fraction profiles are discussed for different physical parameters. As well as the Skin friction coefficient, Nusselt number and Sherwood numbers have discussed in detail and presented through graphically. It is found that the thermal radiation enhances the effective thermal diffusivity and the temperature rises. It is also observed that the buoyancy parameter strengthens the velocity field, showing a decreasing behavior of temperature and nanoparticle volume fraction profiles.
