An electromagnetic actuator is known as Riga-surface. The Buongiorno model is used to construct the mathematical model, which includes a Newtonian heating condition as well as radiation effects. Via the fundamental laws of mass, momentum, and energy, transformation is incorporated to obtain nonlinear ordinary differential equations. To solve the governing system, the numerical shooting approach along with Runge-Kutta scheme is used to solve the governing system. A comparison with existing research is made, and the results are obtained to be in strong agreement. Focusing on the response of local Nusselt number to variation of input variables, an experimental structure is incorporated by sensitivity analysis. As underline, the LNN is quite sensitive to radiation number rather than other parameters of interest. Meanwhile, it is demonstrated that sensitivity of LNN to Brownian number decreases with growing thermophoresis number but sensitivity value is also vary from positive to negative for all values of Brownian number. The results are assumed to provide a tentative guidance for possible lab-based experiments.https://scientiairanica.sharif.edu/article_22594_cfb78aea0e11276b40ae9be186fe528c.pdf
