The present study emphases steady boundary layer flow and heat transfer of a hyperbolic tangent fluid flowing over a vertical exponentially stretching cylinder in its axial directionwith non-uniform heat source/sink. Proposed mathematical model has a tendency to characterize the effect of the non-uniform heat source/sink. The non-linear ordinary differential equations are solved using the Runge-Kutta Feldberg (RKF) integration method. The characteristics of velocity and temperature boundary layers in the presence of Weissennberg number are presented for different physical parameters such as heat source/ sink parameter, Reynolds number , the Prandtl number , the Weissennberg number and the natural convection parameter , magnetic field parameter and porosity parameter . Moreover, the friction factor coefficients, Nusselt number are also estimated and discussed for aforesaid physical parameters. In addition, the rate of heat transfer rate is higher in case of compared to with .
