    Abstract :

    The present chapter study sought to investigate the effects of radiation and chemical reaction as well as viscous heat dissipation on the transient free convection and mass transfer flow of an electrically conducting, viscous, incompressible fluid, past an infinite vertical porous plate, in presence of uniform externally applied transverse magnetic field. The plate is subjected to a variable suction velocity and both the temperature as well as concentration is assumed to be oscillating with time. The dimensionless governing equations for this study are solved numerically using finite difference method. The velocity, temperature and concentration profiles are shown graphically for various material parameters such as magnetic parameter (M), Prndtl number (Pr), Schmidt number (Sc), Chemical reaction parameter (k), Grashof number (Gr), modified Grashof number (Gc), Eckert number (Ec), radiation parameter (R).
