In this work, nanofluid flow characteristics of an inclined channel flow exposed to constant magnetic field and pressure gradient is investigated. The nanofluid considered is water based Cu nanoparticles with a volume fraction of 0.06. The viscous dissipation is taken into account in the energy equation and the governing differential equations are nondimensionalized. The coupled one dimensional differential equations are solved via Generalized Differential Quadrature Method (GDQM) discretization followed by Newton Raphson method. Furthermore, the effect of magnetic field, inclination angle of the channel and volume fraction on nanoparticles in the nanofluid on velocity and temperature profiles are examined and represented by figures to give a thorough understanding of the system behavior. Designing systems utilizing nanofluids optimally, is highly dependent to achieving accurate model definitions figuring their inherent performance.
