    Abstract

    An analysis is presented for the convection-radiation interaction heat transfer in boundary-layer flows over a semi-infinite flat plate with temperature dependent effective viscosity embedded in a fluid-saturated porous medium in the presence of a magnetic field. The conservation equations that govern the problem were reduced to a dimensionless form. The system was solved numerically by the Keller-box method. Asymptotic solutions for small and large values of the distance from the leading edge of the plate are presented. The influence of the various parameters entering into the problem on the velocity and heat transfer is studied.
