In the present research, Tiwari and Das model are used for the impact of a magnetic field on non-Newtonian nanofluid flow in the presence of injection and suction. The PDEs are converted into ordinary differential equations (ODEs) using the similarity method. The obtained ordinary differential equations are solved numerically using shooting method along with RK-4. Part of the present study uses nanoparticles (NPs) like TiO2 and Al2O3 and sodium carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC/water) is considered as a base fluid (BF). This study is conducted to find the influence of nanoparticles, Prandtl number, and magnetic field on velocity and temperature profile, however, the Nusselt number and coefficient of skin friction parameters are also presented in detail with the variation of nanoparticles and parameters. The obtained results of the present study are presented using MATLAB. In addition to these, some simulations of partial differential equations are also shown using software for graphing surface plots of velocity profile and streamlines along with surface plots and isothermal contours of the temperature profile.
