The main intention of this article is to explore the significance of electronmagnetohydrodynamic (EMHD) dusty nanofluid on the stagnation point flow in the presence of radiation and Ohmic heating. Water is considered as base fluid with single-wall carbon nanotubes along with suspended dust particles. The numerical solutions for both dusty phase and fluid phase differential systems are obtained by using Runge Kutta 4th order with shooting method. Influence of embedded parameters such as Biot number, electric field, viscous dissipation, magnetic field, thermal radiation, Joule heating and stagnation point flow are presented graphically. Dust particles play a significant role in food pharmaceutical industries particularly for efficient cultivation of microorganisms and also these type of studies may be applicable in atmospheric fields, wastewater treatment, metal objects covered with plastic materials and solids drying. The higher values of electric field parameter (E) increases the fluid phase velocity and dusty phase velocity. An increase in the thermal radiation parameter releases thermal energy into the flow, so this energy helps to increase the fluid phase temperature and dusty phase temperature. The fluid phase temperature and dusty phase temperature declines with increasing the electric field parameter for dusty fluid and dusty nanofluid cases. © IMechE 2021.
