Abstract :

In this paper we have considered the unsteady free convective flow of a viscous incompressible electrically conducting fluid over an infinite vertical porous plate under the influence of uniform transverse magnetic field with time dependent permeability and oscillatory suction. The governing equations of the flow field are solved by a regular perturbation method for small amplitude of the permeability. The closed form solutions for the velocity, temperature and concentration have been derived analytically and also its behaviour is computationally discussed with reference to different flow parameters with the help of profiles. The skin fiction on the boundary, the heat flux in terms of the Nusselt number and rate of mass transfer in terms of Sherwood number are also obtained and their behaviour computationally discussed.
