Abstract

This paper to study unsteady MHD mixed convection flow past an infinite vertical oscillating plate through porous medium, taking account of the presence of free/forced convection and mass transfer.  Using similarity transformation, the coupled non linear governing equations are solved numerically by applying the combination of the base scheme submethods midpoint, and a method enhancement scheme Richardson extrapolation technique together with Fehlberg fourth-fifth order Runge-Kutta shooting iteration method with degree four interpolant. The results are obtained for velocity, temperature, concentration. The effects of various material parameters are discussed on flow variables and presented by graphs.
