Abstract: The energy produced by the melting stretching disks surface has a wide range of commercial applications, including semi-conductor material preparation, magma solidification, permafrost melting, and frozen land refreezing, among others. In view of this, in the current communication we analyzed magnetohydrodynamic flow of Maxwell nanofluid between two parallel rotating disks. Nanofluids are important due to their astonishing properties in heat conduction flows and in the enhancement of electronic and manufacturing devices. Furthermore, the distinct tiny-sized particles and in the Maxwell water-based fluid for enhancing the heat transfer rate are analyzed. The heat equation is developed in the occurrence of thermal radiation. The influences of melting impacts are incorporated. The mathematical model is developed in the form of partial differential expressions then converted to ordinary differential equations by employing tool of similarity variables. Finite element method (FEM) is chosen for solving the nonlinear governing ordinary differential equations (ODEs) with necessary conditions. The consequence of flow parameters against the velocity profiles and heat transport field is considered. The noted novelty of this communication is to discuss the thermal transfer of Maxwell nanofluid model through double stretching disks with thermal radiation and melting phenomenon. Further, /water and /water are considered in the modeling.

Advanced technologies realize the critical value of a unique type of energy transport fluids known as nanoliquid, because of the growing requirements of heat. The most significant aspect of the heat transfer system is the heat efficiency of the base fluid. Since non-metallic materials have poorer thermal efficiency than metallic substances. High thermal efficiency nanoparticles dispersed in regular fluids, which are typically made up of metals and oxides, greatly improve the heat proficiency of the host liquid. Therefore, metals are more useful to improving the thermal transfer rate.

2.1 Mathematical and Physical Flow Description
Considerable the effect of steady incompressible, axisymmetric electromagnetic flow with heat transformation by using different particles based on Maxwell nanofluid between both revolving stretching disks at the distance h from upper to lower disks. The upper and lower disks have the distinct angular velocities denoted by and both disks have distinct stretching rates along the radial direction and axial direction correspondingly.

3 Numerical Process: Finite Element Method (FEM)
Here, the nonlinear dimensionless ODE's (14)–(16) and (19) with specific boundary conditions (17) are tackled by utilizing the finite element method (FEM) or finite element analysis (FEA). These ODEs are highly nonlinear, so analytical techniques are not useful to solve these expressions. Therefore, the (FEM) is used to compute the solution of highly nonlinear system. The FEM is more effective than other technique.

3.4 Validation of Results
We used finite element method for tackling the nonlinear set of ODEs. Because fewer nodes are required in finite element, less memory is required to perform the full program, resulting in improved accuracy and, as a result, a shorter calculation time than FEM.

We observed good agreement between our results and published literature. Here minimal percentage errors are also display in Table 3.
4 Results and Discussion
Fig. 2 indicates the radial velocity profile for varying variations in magnetic parameter M for and nanofluid flow between double radiative nanofluids. It is clearly illustrated that radial velocity field is reduced via magnetic parameter M. Magnetic parameter develops a resistance force known Lorentz force that is a delaying force in flow of fluid. The radial velocity component of Maxwell nanoliquid with change in Reynolds number is depicted in Fig. 3. From this picture it is learnt that the Reynolds number depresses the radial component of velocity . The physical reason for this is because when the lower disk rotates; the inertial impacts grow, slowing down the flow rate. Fig. 4 reveals the vital role of the radial velocity of fluid for the various variations of the nanoparticles volume fraction . The increment in the velocity component is analyzed for higher nanoparticles volume friction . The converse relationship between the volume fraction and the dynamic viscosity of nanofluid causes the increase in velocity as a physical phenomenon. As a result, the viscosity of ordinary fluid is reduced in response to an increase in nanoparticle volume fraction, and fluid flow is increased . The variation in radial velocity of water-based Maxwell single nanofluid with stretching parameter for upper disk is clarified in Fig. 5. It is mentioned that radial velocity ~of nanoliquid is depresses with stretching parameter for upper disk . Fig. 6 illustrate the effect of fluid parameter against radial flow of and 44 nanofluid for distinguish values of fluid parameter . Here we observed that larger fluid parameter , decays the velocity of fluid. The radial velocity for and nanofluid against melting parameter is elucidated in Fig. 7. Improve in melting parameter reduces the radial velocity field of single nanoliquid inside parallel two disks. The significant decrement in radial velocity profile depicts in Fig. 8, due to growing variations of porosity parameter K. Fig. 9 is plotted to show the behavior of stretching parameter for upper disk against tangential velocity g of and nanofluid flow. It is illustrated that with an increment in variation of stretching parameter , the tangential flow g of nanofluid increases. Fig. 10 signifies the significant features of melting parameter vs. tangential velocity g of and nanofluid flow over two parallel disks. It is examined that tangential velocity of fluid g is decreases via larger variations in the melting parameter .
The effect of thermal radiation parameter against thermal field of nanomaterials is disclosed in Fig. 11. It is analyzed that heat transfer is increased with greater thermal radiation parameter . Physically the absorption coefficient reduces for greater thermal radiation parameter and therefore the thermal field enhances. Fig. 12 examines the estimation in energy field with different amounts of melting parameter for and nanofluid flow over two parallel disks. We noted that temperature distribution is decays via larger melting parameter . Fig. 13 is designed to scrutinize the behavior of Prandtl number against heat profile . It is mentioned that by growing the Prandtl number , the solutal field of species is declined. Since the Prandtl number indicates how quickly thermal diffusion occurs in compared to momentum diffusion, increasing the Prandtl number causes the thermal diffusivity to decrease and the temperature to drop. Fig. 14 shows that temperature distribution is decreased with solid volume fraction of and nanofluid flow.
The current study novelty is recent progress in melting heat transfer transportation of Maxwell nanofluid flow through double parallel rotating disks. The conclusive remarks of the present work are as follows:
• An increase in radial velocity of single Maxwell water-based nanofluid is analyzed vs. an improvement in nanoparticles volume friction.
• Tlhe radial velocity of nanofluid is reducing function of larger magnitudes of the melting parameter.
• The fluid flow declines with fluid parameter.
• The significant value of the tangential velocity is noticed via stretching parameter for upper disk.
• Temperature distribution raises for thermal radiation parameter.
• The thermal field of the fluid reduces as Prandtl number  increases.
• Larger solid volume friction decreases the temperature distribution.
