The characteristic of magnetohydrodynamic flow of viscous fluids is explained here. The energy equation behavior is studied in the presence of heat, viscous dissipation, and joule heating. The major emphasis of this study is the physical behavior of the entropy optimization rate. Based on the implementation of curvilinear coordinates, the basic flow equations are established. Nonlinear partial differential expressions are reduced by appropriate transformation to the ordinary differential system. In the engineering and industrial processes, nanoparticles and their shape have practical consequences. For this reason, we give a detailed investigation of the shape impacts on the flow through the curved stretching surface of nanoparticles. The flow equations are reduced into a number of nonlinear differential equations which are solved numerically using a useful numerical approach called Runge-Kutta-4 (RK-4). The shooting method is first used to reduce the equations to a number of problems of first order, and then the RK-4 approach is used for solution. Impacts for entropy optimization, Bejan number, velocity, concentration, and temperature of several physical parameters are graphically studied.

1. Introduction

During the last few decades, extensive surfaces have been received by researchers. This is due to its extensive uses in mining, metallurgy, and engineering. In the production processes, sheet stretching has certain activities with respect to product characteristics. These applications are important in different real-life processes due to different stretching speeds such as rubber-plating flow generation, metal casting continuous, fiber spinning, paper products, glass blowing and fiber, wire drawing, and polymer sheeting. Due to viscous dissipation, the distribution of the temperature changes as a source of energy, which results in changes in the heat conductivity. Several researchers have recently been interested in developing and designing new cooling/heating equipment and machines.

In magnetohydrodynamic fluid flow, Rashidi et al. [1] highlight the impacts of thermal fluxes and the mixtures by means of a porous stretching sheet. Swain et al. [2] have investigated the heating transmission behaviors in a porous medium for MHD flow in an exponentially expanding sheet. Thermal flux effects and Eid et al. [3] present magnetohydrodynamics in Carreau nanomaterials, which float a porous, nonlinear stretch sheet. Sheikholeslami et al. [4] analyzed the stretchable and forced surface flow of nanomaterials from MHD. The main results of the study demonstrate that radiation parameter improvement reduces the heat transfer rate. Imtiaz et al. [5] examine the effect of the chemical reaction to quartic autocatalysis in magnetohydrodynamic flow from a curved stretchable surface. Hayat et al. [6] analyzed viscous fluid MHD flow over a nonlinear curved, heat generation/absorption stretchable surface.

Usman et al. [7] demonstrate electromagnetic couple stress film flow of hybrid nanofluid over an unsteady rotating disc. Hayat et al. [8] examine the effect of thermal rays and chemical reactions on MHD convective flow through a curved stretching surface. Abbas et al. [9] investigate the flow of hydrodynamic nanomaterial by means of a curved thermal stretching field. The first step was taken to propose an analytical model for the therapeutic efficiency of nanofluids. This model contains the concentration of nanoparticles and the thermal conductivity of the base fluid and nanoparticles.

Moreover, only spherical nanoparticle inclusions are required. Hamilton suggested a model for nonsphere-shaped nanoparticles to address this deficiency. Further studies are carried out in this area with a variety of models exploring nanoparticles sort [1012], particulate form [13], particle size [14], and others. Furthermore, many scientists would also be interested in various heat transfer mechanisms, including Brownian particle motion [15], accumulation of particles [16, 17], and liquid layers [18].

While nanofluids can live up to the thermal efficiency thirst, researchers are still searching for different fluid forms. Hybrid nanofluids are hybrid nanofluid types with excellent thermal performance compared with nanofluids. These fluids were created by scattering into a base fluid two or more types of little particles inside the base fluid or composite nanostructures. This means that the homogeneous mixture of different products hardly could be imagined in a single substance, with the physicochemical properties [19]. The active role of hybrid nanofluids in the various applications of heat transfer is as follows: electronic cooling, automotive radiators, cooling generators, nuclear coolers, machining coolants, lubrications, solar heat, thermal storage, building heating, biomedical treatments, drug control, cooling, and protection. There are positive industrial characteristics, such as chemical stability and high thermal efficiency, which permit the efficient performance of nanofluids.

The measurement of entropy is used to explain the efficiency of many engineering and industrial systems. Various scientists and engineers therefore based their attention on the question of entropy. The sum of any sort of energy produced by a system or its surrounding irreversible processes is called entropy production. It is not necessary to use this energy for a successful operation. The second law of thermodynamics is used for entropy production. In contrast to the first law, Thermodynamics’ second legislation is more effective. Irreversible processes include liquid flux due to resistance flux, diffusion, game heating, viscous fluid rubbing, chemical reaction, thermal radiation, etc. We regulated the entropy generation rate to boost the system’s performance. The second law of thermodynamics states that entropy values must be null or larger within a system than 0. The enteropy rate considering the porosity effect was discussed by Ajibade et al. [20]. The effects of entropy production caused by heat transmission over flat surfaces or stretching plates have examined by numerous researchers [21, 22], but few studies have found in the literature related to the investigation about rate of entropy production with thermal effects in the flow past stretching cylinders. Our current article theoretically examines transmission of thermal energy over a stretching cylinder using heat generation/absorption and Joule heating. Moreover, this work also investigates rate of entropy generation for the spinning flow system.

Entropy production eliminates the usable energy in the system in many engineering and industrial processes. In order to maximize energy in the system for efficient system operation, it is therefore imperative to evaluate the rate of entropy generation in a system. Under the second thermodynamics theorem, all processes of flow and heat transfer undergo irreversible changes. The main cause of these irreversible changes is the lack of control during the processes. While steps to minimize these irreversible effects can be taken, all the energy lost cannot be recovered. The entropy of the system is increased by this process. This results in a standard metric for the investigation of the irreversibility effects of entropy generation rate. Bejan suggested this approach [23, 24]. Khan et al. [25] recently studied the entropy analysis in a curved tube.

This research is intended by means of a curved stretching surface to address entropy generation in MHD vincent fluid flow. Fluid velocity and temperature similarity solutions are obtained, and the reduced equation structure is numerically resolved by a Runge-Kutta shooting algorithm method. The effects of the various interesting variables are studied on the optimization of entropy, speed, number of Bejan, and temperature. The findings were subsequently described in graphical form along with a quantitative discussion about the embedded parameters.

2. Description of the Problem

Take a two-dimensional flow into a curved stretching sheet from an incompressible magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) viscous fluid. In a circle with radius , the extension sheet is curved. The -direction is perpendicular to the fluid motion direction along the stretching surface with the stretching velocity and -direction. In the direction, the magnetic field () is applied. The flow chart is shown in the Figure 1. in which Eq. (1) reflects the preservation in the presence of transverse magnetic fields of mass, transverse, and axial components to preserve linear momentum in Eqs. (2) and (3), respectively. Furthermore, the energy equation defined in Eq. (4) will be used to analyze heat transfer. In addition, and denote -and -direction velocity components, pressure, hybrid nanofluid density, kinematics viscosity, dynamic viscosity, strength of the magnetic field, electric conductivity, and surface temperatures and environmental temperatures, and heat generation, respectively. The transformation is used [26, 27]. Moreover, thermophysical properties of nanofluid and hybrid nanofluid, thermophysical properties of water, ethylene, and copper are displayed in Tables 1 and 2, respectively, which illustrate the effective property of /water-based nanofluid and / hybrid nanofluid.

The general relationship used to compute the density and specific heat for nanofluids (Brikman’s model). The dynamic effective viscosity and the effective thermal conductivity are used by several researchers for many nanofluids and Maxwell’s effective thermal conductivity model for two-phase mixtures.

Now, Eq. (1) is automatically verified, and Eqs. (2)–(4) are transformed to nondimensional ordinary differential equations as follows. in which

Eliminating pressure from Eqs. (8) and (9), we get

The transformed boundary conditions are as follows:

In the above relations, depicts the Prandtl number, the Hartmann number, the Eckert number, the Brinkman number, and the heat generation/absorption parameter, and , , is the curvature parameter.

2.1. Skin Friction Coefficient and Local Nusselt Number

The physical quantities of interest are skin friction coefficient and local Nusselt number , which are define as follows: where the wall fraction and heat transfer along the -direction are define as follows:

In view of Eq. (7), expressions describe in Eq. (17) provide dimensionless skin friction and Nusselt as follows: where elucidates local Reynolds number.

2.2. Entropy Generation Equation

Measuring any sort of energy created in irreversible systems processes is referred to as the generation of entropy. Entropy generation is described in dimensional form:

Dimensionless version satisfies

Bejan number is expressed as follows: or

Here, denotes the entropy generation rate, the temperature difference parameter, and the Brinkman number.

For the sake of comparison, we have also solved the same problem by using the R-K-4 method (coupled with shooting technique), and the results are compared in Table 3. Both solutions show an excellent agreement with each other. These solutions are calculated for and 0, and Prandtl number is taken to be 6.2.

3. Physical Description

In this section, we investigate the comportations of several interesting parameters for entropy optimization, velocity, number of Bejan, skin friction, and heat transfer rates.

3.1. Velocity Profile

For the velocity of different values, Figures 24 are shown. Changes of the axial velocity variable of dimensionless dimensions are shown in Figure 2, for . The fluid velocity is also increased as the curvature parameter () is increased. This means that when compared to the straight layer, the velocity of the curved layer is insufficient. This shift in velocity is much higher in shape.

The effect of on velocity is plotted in Figure 3. Figure 3 shows that the parameter of plays a role in this point. The explanation is that the fluid movement is due to the surface extension, and that any fluid change on the stretching surface helps decelerate the fluid flow. Moreover, it is apparent from this figure that for different form variables, the decrease in velocity occurs slightly greater.

Figure 4 is plotted to evaluate the effect on the velocity of varying shape variables of volumetric fractions . From this figure, it is assumed that for shape variables, the velocity profile decreases in dominant.

3.2. Temperature Profile

The influences of on are plotted in Figures 59. The influence of these parameters on is under discussion in the curved stretching surface. In addition, there are four distinct shape factors plotted for each graph. Figure 5 shows that has a decreasing role to play. This is because the fluid acceleration is caused by surface stretching, and so any fluid change on the stretching surface causes the fluid to decelerate. Furthermore, it is evident from this figure that the decrease in range is slightly more for different shape factors results.

Figure 6 is plotted to check the parameter for temperature effect. Through this calculation, it is discovered that the temperature increases with . It is because the improvement in value strengthens the conduction effects and thereby increases the temperature. In the field outside the surface, the rise is prevalent and leads to the rising heat flux in the soil. Hybrid nanofluid-shape blade nanoparticles have the highest temperature and the lowest temperature of nanofluid nanoparticles formed by bricks. Furthermore, these effects are more massive than nanofluid in the case of hybrid nanofluids because hybrid nanofluid is more thermal than nanofluids.

Figure 7 indicates the effect of the parameter for the Brinkman number . From this figure, the parameter of heat generation is presumed to slowly affect the distribution of temperature. It is because it implies that the surface temperature is above the ambient temperature, and more heat is transferred to the fluid from the ambient, which contributes to thermal boundary layer thickness and increasing temperature. In the case of hybrid nanofluid, this temperature rise is also assumed to predominate. The maximum temperature for blade-shaped nanofluid nanoparticles is achieved; for brick-shaped nanofluid nanoparticles, the lowest temperature magnitude is noted.

The variance of the Hartmann number () on is shown in Figure 8. Here, we have found that higher () values lead to an increase in thickness and thermal boundaries. The implication is that the resistive force (force Lorentz) increases with a higher value of and therefore increases the temperature.

Figure 9 demonstrates the influence of volumetric fractions on temperature. It is expected that the thickness of both the temperature and thermal boundary layer would grow with an increase of . That is because contributes to the deceleration of fluid flow and contributes indirectly to the magnitude of rising temperature. The temperature magnitude for hybrid nanofluids is also evident from this figure to be higher for the values of than for the nanofluid value. In addition, hybrid nanofluid blade-shaped nanoparticles have a high temperature, and brick-shaped nanofluid nanoparticles have the lowest temperature.

3.3. Entropy Generation

Impacts on and Be are examined in this section of a Hartmann number (), Brinkman number (Br), and volumetric fractions. Figures 10 and 11 illustrate the impact of Hartmann number () on and Be. Increased entropy generation in is reported. Because of the fact that for higher (), the force of Lorentz creates greater resistance to fluid movement, and the entropy increases as expected. The Bejan number (Be) was reduced compared to larger numbers () of Hartmann.

The behavior of Brinkman number (Br) on and Be is illustrated in Figures 12 and 13. More (Br) values are more entropy-generated . In fact, the thermal conductivity decreases for higher estimates (Br), and thus an increase is shown with the entropy optimization process. The counter effect is for (Br) the Bejan number (Be). The number of Bejan is the largest value if the number of Brinkman is zero and decreases accordingly (Br).

Figures 14 and 15 are sketched for the impact of volumetric fractions against and (Be). It is noticed that the entropy of fluid increases for larger () while Bejan number (Be) reduces.

3.4. Engineering Quantities

In the final part of this section, Figures 1619 are plotted to test the effect of different shape factor values in terms of variations of different embedded parameters on the local Nusselt number and skin friction. Numerous values of were decorated with the horizontal axis. From Figure 16, the case where the injection is paired with contraction, the parameter increases the skin friction, while the parameter shows a reversed behavior.

In addition, nanostructures formed by the blades possess high heat transmission. Figure 17 is plotted for the different values of which indicate the same corresponding analysis in Figure 16. Again, it has been found that nanocomposite-shaped blades are more capable of transferring heat than tiny particles formed by platelets, cylinders, or bricks.

Figures 18 and 19 show the effect , , and β on the local heat transfer rate. Figure 18 shows that the local heat transfer rates decrease, as the value of increases. For blade-shaped nanoparticles, the rates are higher and against β are indicated.

The changes in the local number of Nusselt due to the increasing number of Hartmann () are seen in Figure 19. It is found that nanoparticles formed by brick which decreases in the local heat transfer rate are lower than the others.
