This investigation presents the characteristics of Cattaneo-Christov heat flux model for the boundary layer flow of Burgers’ fluid model. Instead of simple Fourier’s law of heat conduction, we presented the Cattaneo-Christov model to analyze the thermal relaxation properties when the heat source/sink is present in the system. Mathematical modeling the laws of momentum and energy are presented under the order analysis approach. It is revealed that the term “” is for the hydro-magnetic rheology of the Newtonian model whereas the generalized magnetic field term (as mentioned in Eq. 2) is for the Burgers’ model which is incorporated in the current analysis. Suitable transformations are utilized for the conversion of partial differential system into coupled nonlinear set of ordinary differential equations which are tackled analytically through homotopy analysis technique. The plots of various physical quantities are presented showing the dynamics of the considered analysis. Streamlines for Burgers’ and Newtonian model are presented which show a difference of rheology. Numerical values for skin friction and surface heat transfer rate are presented in the form of tables.
