The objective of current research is to endorse the thermal aspect of Sutterby nanofluid containing the microorganisms due the stretched cylinder. The features of nonlinear thermal radiation, Darcy resistance and activation energy are also incorporated to inspect the thermal prospective. The problem is further extended with implementation of modified Fourier and Fick’s theories. The results are presented for the stretched cylinder and also for stationary plate. The numerical formulation for the problem is presented by following the shooting technique. The comparative numerical is performed to verify the computed simulations. The results convey that the presence of Darcy resistance parameter enhanced the velocity more effectively for stretched cylinder. A reduction in velocity due to Sutterby fluid parameter and buoyancy ratio parameter has been observed. Moreover, the temperature profile enhanced with larger sponginess parameter more effectively for stretching cylinder.
