The present article scrutinizes the prominent characteristics of the Cattaneo-Christov heat flux on magnetohydrodynamic Oldroyd-B radiative liquid flow over two different geometries. The effects of cross-diffusion are considered in the modeling of species and energy equations. Similarity transformations are employed to transmute the governing flow, species and energy equations into a set of nonlinear ordinary differential equations (ODEs) with the appropriate boundary conditions. The final system of dimensionless equations is resolved numerically by utilizing the R-K-Fehlberg numerical approach. The behaviors of all physical pertinent flow controlling variables on the three flow distributions are analyzed through plots. The obtained numerical results have been compared with earlier published work and reveal good agreement. The Deborah numbers and have quite opposite effects on velocity and energy fields. The increase in thermal relaxation parameter corresponds to a decrease in the fluid temperature. This study has salient applications in heat and mass transfer manufacturing system processing for energy conversion.
