We constructed a mathematical model for analyzing convection heat and mass transfer of an incompressible viscous nanofluid through porous disks in the presence of metallic nanoparticles for different problems. We compare the results by adding the convective boundaries. Governing equations are convert into non-linear ordinary differential equations. Numericaly we solve by FD discretization (SOR). The influence of different parameters on the heat and mass transfer profiles are shown.
