dc.description.abstract A time dependent symmetric flow with heat transmission of a second-grade fluid containing nanoparticles and gyrotactic microorganisms between two parallel plates in two dimensions is explored. Partial differential equations furnish the nonlinear ordinary differential equations due to the usage of relevant similarity transformations. Motion declines due to second grade fluid, energy elevates due to thermophoresis, concentration enhances due to Brownian motion and gyrotactic microorganisms profile elevates due to Peclet number. The unsteadiness parameter β has profound effect on the nanobioconvection flow within the plates. Optimal homotopy asymptotic method (OHAM) is followed to evaluate the transformed systems. Consistency and smoothness between the first and second orders of the optimal homotopy asymptotic method are revealed through graphs. Also, graphs are provided to manifest the impacts of each parameter. en_US
