The nanotechnology era has led to latest advancement in improving energy resources, which play a significant importance in the development of industrial sectors and engineering. The main purpose of current article is to address the Wu’s slip impact in bio-convection flow of Oldroyd-B fluid containing nanoparticles configured by stretching cylinder/plate in the presence of swimming motile microorganisms. The most desirable type of non-Newtonian fluid, such as Oldroyd-B fluid is employed to evaluate the prominent parameters. The particular characteristics including thermal radiation and well-known activation energy are also involved for the present flow scenario. To examine the inspiration of thermophoresis diffusion and Brownian motion on Oldroyd-B nanofluid, the Buongiorno’s model has been addressed. The appropriate conversion is employed to reformulate the governing system of partial differential equations to dimensionless nonlinear ordinary differential structures. The nonlinear dimensionless ODE’s are computed numerically by utilizing bvp4c solver via MATLAB. The behavior of controlling parameters against velocity distribution, temperature field, nanoparticle concentration and microorganism concentration is scrutinized through figures and tables.
