This article applies the homotopy perturbation transform technique to analyze fractional-order nonlinear fifth-order Korteweg–de-Vries-type (KdV-type)/Kawahara-type equations. This method combines the Zain Ul Abadin Zafar-transform (ZZ-T) and the homotopy perturbation technique (HPT) to show the validation and efficiency of this technique to investigate three examples. It is also shown that the fractional and integer-order solutions have closed contact with the exact result. The suggested technique is found to be reliable, efficient, and straightforward to use for many related models of engineering and several branches of science, such as modeling nonlinear waves in different plasma models.
