The aim of the present analysis is to provide local similarity solutions of Casson fluid over a non-isothermal cylinder subject to suction/blowing. The cylinder is placed inside a porous medium and stretched in a nonlinear way. Further, the impact of chemical reaction, viscous dissipation, and heat generation/absorption on flow fields is also investigated. Similarity transformations are employed to convert the nonlinear governing equations to nonlinear ordinary differential equations, and then solved via the Keller box method. Findings demonstrate that the magnitude of the friction factor and mass transfer rate are suppressed with increment in Casson parameter, whereas heat transfer rate is found to be intensified. Increase in the curvature parameter enhanced the flow field distributions. The magnitude of wall shear stress is noticed to be higher with an increase in porosity and suction/blowing parameters.
