In the present research, it is solved in an innovative manner the essentially Non-Similar nanofluids jet discharged over a generalized non-linearly stretching wall. The Non-Similar set-up is interpreted as a combination of wall jet flow at the leading edge and non-linearly stretching sheet flow far away from it. Nanofluids are simulated employing Buongiorno's two-phase model together with a modified boundary condition for nanoparticles transport equation. The compositely-transformed partial differential equations (PDE) of Non-Similar forms were solved numerically after employing a new mapping function to abridge the horizontal coordinate of an infinite length into a finite one. The numerical algorithm contains quasi-linearization technique together with an implicit algorithm of tridiagonal form. It should be pointed out that such a new Non-Similar setup is brought into account for the first time in the literature. In this respect, we summarize the outstanding novel findings of the present work as:
