**ABSTRACT**

This paper studies, the impacts of heat generation on MHD flow of radiative nanofluid over an exponentially stretching sheet in a porous medium with viscous dissipation are numerically analyzed. Two sorts of nanofluids, generated by solid nanoparticles with water such as alumina-water nanofluid and silver-water nanofluid were investigated. With the use of similarity transformations, to obtain a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations. The resulting boundary value problem is solved numerically using the Nachtsheim-Swigert shooting technique scheme together with fourth-order Runge-Kutta integration method. Numerical results are obtained for the velocity, temperature distribution and concentration profiles for selected values of the governing physical parameters of combined magnetic interaction and porosity parameter, heat generation parameter, viscous dissipation parameter, thermal radiation parameter, solid volume fraction parameter, chemical reaction parameter and Lewis number are discussed. Quantities of engineering interest such as Skin friction coefficient, Nusselt number, and Sherwood number are also obtained numerically and are tabulated.
