A computational approach is delineated for mass and heat transport enhancement/reduction process to control the drift of nanofluid. The fluid is drifting on the inclined stretched surface. This numerical study demands the resolution of fundamental (conservation momentum, mass transfer, and energy) equations and for which computational proficiency is a challenge. The time-dependent concentration and temperature on the periphery, together with stretched velocity, are the basis of the transient mixed convective laminar nanofluid flow. A similar transformations technique is imposed to adopt a system of time dominated non-linear fundamental equations and transformed it into a differential equation of the ordinary system. It is solved computationally by utilising the scheme of Nactsheim–Swigert shooting along with the iteration process, namely Runge–Kutta of order six. The obtained model depends on diversified natural parameters and is narrated on several profiles. Moreover, an explicit scheme has also been imposed to illustrate the developed visualisation of the fluid flow with the aid of streamlines and isothermal lines. Here, the stretching parameter demonstrates a provoking character on the momentum boundary layer, and the Prandtl number depicts an insignificant minimal impact on the mass transfer flow. The accuracy of this model is found satisfactory by validating with experimental data and comparing it with the previous numerical tests. This investigation has applications in engineering industries in thermal nano-technological materials processing and manufactures.
