In present study effects of magnetic field and variable thermal conductivity on Sisko fluid model are analyzed. The modeled partial differential equations are simplified by boundary layer approach. Appropriate similarity transformations are applied to transform governing partial differential equations into ordinary differential equations. Then these equations are solved numerically by shooting method in combination with Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg method. Comparison between present and previous computed results is presented via tables. The variations in fluid velocity and temperature are displayed through graphs for different values of Sisko fluid parameter, curvature parameter, magnetic field parameter, thermal conductivity parameter and Prandtl number. The effects of physical parameters on skin friction coefficient and local Nusselt number are exhibited with figures and tables.
