ABSTRACT
A theoretical analysis of mixed convective unsteady flow of a visco-elastic incompressible fluid past an accelerated infinite vertical porous plate subjected to a uniform suction has been investigated under the influence of a uniform transverse magnetic field. Approximate solutions for fluid velocity, temperature, concentration field and skin friction have been obtained by using perturbation technique. The effects of the various parameters involved in the solution have been studied. The profiles of fluid velocity and the skin friction are presented graphically to observe effects of the visco-elastic parameter.
