ABSTRACT

This investigation is undertaken to study the effect of the MHD flow of a viscous incompressible fluid past an oscillating infinite vertical plate with variable temperature embedded in a porous medium with chemical reaction. The coupled non-linear partial differential equations are solved analytically by using the Laplace transform technique.The concentration, temperature, velocity field and skin - friction are presented graphically for different values of physical parameters.

Keywords :heat transfer, mass transfer, MHD, chemical reaction, oscillating infinite vertical plate, variable temperature, porous medium.
