A model of two-phase flow involving non-Newtonian fluid is described to be more reliable to present the fluid that involves industrial applications due to the special characteristics in its behavior. Many models of non-Newtonian fluid were discovered in the last few decades but the model that captured the most attention is the Williamson model. The consideration of the existing particles in the Williamson flow (two-phase Williamson fluid) will make the model more interesting to investigate. Hence, this paper is aimed to explore the flow of two-phase Williamson fluid model in the presence of MHD and thermal radiation circumstances. The obtained ordinary differential equations after the transformations are solved using the Runge-Kutta Fehlberg (RKF45) method. The flow is considered asymmetric since it moves over a vertical stretching sheet with external stimuli. The result displays variation in dust phases compared to the fluid phase under distribution of velocity and temperature. It can be concluded that the fluid–particle interaction (FPI) parameter lessening the motion of fluid and heating characteristics. In addition, the upsurges on skin friction and heat transfer are resulting from the rising FPI. Furthermore, the presence of Williamson parameter increases the skin friction while causing degenerations on heat transfer of flow.
