The current analytical study is concerned with studying the impact of Cattaneo-Christov heat flux of an incompressible flow which obeys Carreau nanofluid inside a symmetric channel in the existence of the porous medium. The impacts of couple stress, heat generation absorption, joule heating, couple stress viscous dissipation with Soret as well as Dufour numbers are all presumed. Long wavelength and law Reynold’s number approximations are utilized for solving the governing system of equations. Furthermore, the traditional perturbation method together with the homotopy perturbation technique (HPM) are applied to obtain the resultant solutions of these equations. The different physical parameters on velocity, temperature and nanoparticles concentration distributions are illustrated through a set of graphs. It is found that the elevate in the slip velocity parameter dwindle the velocity. Meanwhile, the rise in the value of thermal relaxation time parameter led to decay the temperature of the fluid. Over and above, enhancing the nano Biot number value caused an enrichment in the concentration of nanofluid.
