Abstract : This article comprehensively investigates the thermal performance of a ternary hybrid nanofluid flowing in a permeable inclined cylinder/plate system. The study focuses on the effects of key constraints such as the inclined geometry, permeable medium, and heat source/sink on the thermal distribution features of the ternary nanofluid. The present work is motivated by the growing demand for energy-efficient cooling systems in various industrial and energy-related applications. A mathematical model is developed to describe the system’s fluid flow and heat-transfer processes. The PDEs (partial differential equations) are transformed into ODEs (ordinary differential equations) with the aid of suitable similarity constraints and solved numerically using a combination of the RKF45 method and shooting technique. The study’s findings give useful insights into the behavior of ternary nanofluids in permeable inclined cylinder/plate systems. Further, important engineering coefficients such as skin friction and Nusselt numbers are discussed. The results show that porous constraint will improve thermal distribution but declines velocity. The heat-source sink will improve the temperature profile. Plate geometry shows a dominant performance over cylinder geometry in the presence of solid volume fraction. The rate of heat distribution in the cylinder will increase from 2.08% to 2.32%, whereas in the plate it is about 5.19% to 10.83% as the porous medium rises from 0.1 to 0.5.
