In this paper, we discuss thin‐film nanofluid sprayed in non‐Darcian, magnetohydrodynamic, embedding in a porous medium flow and thermal radiation with heat transfer generation on a stretching cylinder. The spray rate is a function of film size. A comparative study is made for the nanoparticles, namely, copper oxide (CuO), alumina oxide (Al2O3), and iron oxide (Fe3O4). The governing continuity, momentum, and energy equations of the nanofluid are reduced using similarity transformation and converted into a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations, which are solved numerically. Numerical solutions are obtained for the velocity and temperature fields as well as for the skin‐friction coefficient and Nusselt number. The pressure distribution and spray rate are also calculated. The results are presented in graphical forms to study the effects of various parameters.
