Purpose: The purpose of this study is to investigate the Cattaneo-Christov double diffusion, multiple slips and Darcy-Forchheimer’s effects on entropy optimized and thermally radiative flow, thermal and mass transport of hybrid nanoliquids past stretched cylinder subject to viscous dissipation and Arrhenius activation energy. Design/methodology/approach: The presented flow problem consists of the flow, heat and mass transportation of hybrid nanofluids. This model is featured with Casson fluid model and Darcy-Forchheimer model. Heat and mass transportations are represented with Cattaneo-Christov double diffusion and viscous dissipation models. Multiple slip (velocity, thermal and solutal) mechanisms are adopted. Arrhenius activation energy is considered. For graphical and numerical data, the bvp4c scheme in MATLAB computational tool along with the shooting method is used. Findings: Amplifying curvature parameter upgrades the fluid velocity while that of porosity parameter and velocity slip parameter whittles down it. Growing mixed convection parameter, curvature parameter, Forchheimer number, thermally stratified parameter intensifies fluid temperature. The rise in curvature parameter and porosity parameter enhances the solutal field distribution. Surface viscous drag gets controlled with the rising of the Casson parameter which justifies the consideration of the Casson model. Entropy generation number and Bejan number upgrades due to growth in diffusion parameter while that enfeeble with a hike in temperature difference parameter. Originality/value: To the best of the authors’ knowledge, this research study is yet to be available in the existing literature.
