The motive of this work is to examine the transfer of heat as well as mass phenomena of Eyring-Powell fluid flow on a stretching type of porous medium. The impact of heat absorption and thermal radiation are also considered here to describe the characteristics of the fluid flow. Firstly, a mathematical model of this fluid flow is established which includes time dependent continuity, energy, momentum and concentration formula. Then the fundamental equations are formed to dimensionless format. After that an explicit type finite difference technique is imposed to solve the model by taking the help of FORTRAN. The stability as well as convergence analysis (SCA) is used to develop and check the precession of the overall system. Moreover, the fields of temperature, velocity, concentration, skin friction, Nusselt number and Sherwood number got affected significantly with the influences of various pertinent parameters which are presented in different color diagrams. However, the updated visualization of the fluid flows is also presented by both isotherms and streamlines for the impact of radiation parameter. Moreover, for Eyring-Powell fluid, an interesting observation has been made that the thermophoretic parameter is influencing the temperature field significantly rather than the Brownian parameter. Finally, for the validation of the ongoing investigation, a suitable comparison is also depicted with some published papers and a proper agreement is noticed.
