In this paper, we examined the unsteady boundary layer flow and heat transfer of a Sisko fluid model over an axisymmetric stretching porous disk in the presence of uniform magnetic field. Mathematical modelling is performed in cylindrical polar coordinates. By means of suitable transformations, the governing time-dependent partial differential equations are reduced to nonlinear coupled ordinary differential equations. Shooting method with Runge–Kutta of order 5  is employed to compute non-dimensional velocity and temperature. The effects of pertinent parameters are portrayed through graphs. The skin friction coefficient and Nusselt number are tabulated to study the behaviours at the stretching surface.
