This contemporary work explores the theoretical analysis of energy transfer performance of distinct nanoparticles (silver, copper, aluminium oxide and titanium oxide) adjacent to a moving surface under the influence of a porous medium which is driven by the buoyancy force. A mathematical model is presented which is converted to similarity equations by employing similarity transformation. The condensed nonlinear equations were approximated by the iterative method called RKF 45th-order. The flow and energy transference characteristics are explained through graphs and tabulated values. The notable findings are: silver- water is an appropriate nanofluid for enhancing the thermal conductivity of the base fluid. Titanium oxide – water shows a lower fluid flow movement due to porosity.
