Current work focuses on stagnation point flow of MHD Carreau fluid with heterogeneous–homogeneous reactions. Non-linear stretched sheet of variable thickness is the main agent for flow induction. Liquid is assumed an electrically conducted. Nonlinear thermal radiation and heat generation/absorption aspects are addressed. Proper transformations lead to dimensionless the governing problem. Resultant systems are tackled numerically via NDSolve based Shooting scheme. Importance of emerging variables is addressed through graphical illustrations. Tables regarding the estimations of skin friction and rate of heat transfer are computed and examined for various physical variables. It is found that convective and radiation variables improve the liquid temperature. Obtained outcomes are also compared in limiting way and found an excellent agreement.
