A yawed cylinder is a cylinder inclined in the plane of a flowing liquid. The liquid flow past the yawed cylinder is important for practice, namely, for bubble suppression and control of the boundary layer transition in undersea applications. It should be noted that an inclined cylinder characterizes an asymmetrical behavior of fluid flow and heat transfer. Energy and mass transference characteristics of a steady nonlinear convective flow over the yawed cylinder by accounting for chemically reactive species and viscous dissipation are analyzed in this investigation. The differential equations defining the boundary layer parameters are then transformed into a dimensionless view, taking into account the non-similar transformation. It should be noted that the governing equations have been written using the conservation laws of mass, momentum, energy, and concentration. These considered equations allow the simulation of the analyzed phenomenon using numerical techniques. Further, quasilinearization and implicit finite difference approximation are used to work out the non-dimensional governing equations. A parametric investigation of all the pertinent characteristics accompanies this. A descriptive system of computation outcomes for the velocity, temperature, and concentration patterns, the drag coefficients, Nu and Sh, is demonstrated by graphs. Enhancing the magnitudes of the Eckert number raises the temperature pattern while energy transport strength is reduced. As the species concentration profile diminishes, the mass transfer characteristics are enhanced for raising magnitudes of the nonlinear chemical reaction parameter. Further, a velocity profile along the chordwise direction rises with enhancing magnitudes of nonlinear convection characteristics and yaw angle. Furthermore, the velocity pattern along the spanwise direction enhances with the growing magnitudes of yaw angle. For assisting buoyancy flow, the friction parameter at the border in the spanwise direction enhances with rising values of yaw angle.
