What is it about?
Marangoni convective effect on pure and hybrid dusty nanofluid flow is studied numerically. The flow characteristics are analyzed for different flow pertinent parameters. Space dependent heat source and radiative effects on the flow are analyzed.

Why is it important?
Surface tension of the fluid is not constant in many practical situations. Hence temperature and concentration dependent surface tension (Marangoni convection) is considered for the flow. This effect plays a major role in cloud seeding (artificial rain). Hybrid nanoparticle is taken for the study as the required thermal conductivity of the particles can be achieved using combination of two or more particles. Brownian motion and themophoresis effects are taken into account.
