**Abstract:**

*Ra*= 10

^{3}−10

^{6}), nanoparticle volume concentration (

*f*= 0-0.04) and Hartmann number (

*Ha*= 0-90) on the flow and heat transfer characteristics have been examined. The results indicate that the Hartmann number influences the heat transfer at

*Ra*= 10

^{6}more than other Raleigh numbers, as the least effect is observed at

*Ra*= 10

^{3}. Moreover, the results show that the solid volume fraction has a significant influence on heat transfer, depending on the value of Hartmann, heat generation or absorption coefficient and Rayleigh numbers.
