This paper investigates MHD steady flow of viscous nanofluid due to a rotating disk. Water is treated as a base fluid and copper as nanoparticle. Nanofluid fills the porous medium. Effects of partial slip, viscous dissipation and thermal radiation are also considered. Similarity transformations reduce the nonlinear partial differential equations to ordinary differential equations. Flow and heat transfer characteristics are computed by HAM solutions. Also computations for skin friction coefficient and Nusselt number are presented and examined for pertinent parameters. It is noted that higher velocity slip parameter decreases the radial and azimuthal velocities while temperature decreases for larger values of the thermal slip parameter. Also the rate of heat transfer enhances when the nanoparticle volume fraction increases.
