In this study, the physical perspectives on three-dimensional flow of base fluids with nanoparticles are comparatively investigated under the effect of viscous dissipation using Runge-Kutta 4th order numerical procedure. With the help of similarities transformations, the mathematical model which are described as partial differential equations are transmuted into ordinary differential equations. As said, the Runge-Kutta method, assisted by the shooting strategy, is designed to deal numerically with the resulting set of non-linear differential equations. Highlights of the flow-field and thermal field are illustrated quantitatively in plots. Results for local skin friction coefficients and local Nusselt number are reported and analyzed tabularly. The accuracy of present study is verified in comparison to existing literatures and we have identified an astounding understanding. Also, results indicate that, the velocity profile is enhanced by the modified Hartmann number and stretching ratio parameters. The nanofluid, in fact, has elevated skin friction values and is also more suitable for increasing the rate of heat transfer.
