In this paper, Homotopy perturbation method (HPM) has been applied to investigate the effect of magnetic field on Cu-water nanofluid flow in non-parallel walls. The validity of HPM solutions were verified by comparing with numerical results obtained using a fourth order Runge–Kutta method. Effects of active parameters on flow have been presented graphically. The results show that velocity in boundary layer thickness decreased with increase of Reynolds number and nanoparticle volume friction and increased with increasing Hartmann number.
