The present paper is devoted to the analysis of MHD flow and melting heat transfer of a nanofluid over a stretching surface taking into account a second-order slip model and thermal radiation. Similarity solutions for the transformed governing equations are obtained. The reduced equations are solved numerically by applying a shooting technique using the Runge-Kutta Fehlberg method. The influences of the various involved parameters on velocity profiles, temperature profiles, concentration profiles as well as reduced skin friction coefficient, Nusselt number and Sherwood number are discussed through graphs and tables. These results show that the second-order slip flow model is necessary to predict the flow characteristics accurately in the presence of thermal radiation and melting effect.
