The objective of current study is to discuss the effects of the Soret and Dufour with radiation absorption, applied heat source and viscous dissipation on an unsteady MHD mixed convective flow with velocity slip condition across a semi-infinite vertical permeable plate in porous medium.


A similarity transformation is used to turn the governing partial differential equations with proper boundary conditions into coupled, non-linear ordinary differential equations with variable coefficients. The inbuilt MATLAB solver bvp4c is used to generate numerical solutions.


The effects on momentum, thermal and solutal boundary layers for various parametric values are graphically depicted. Skin friction, Nusselt number and Sherwood number are all tabulated and discussed in detail. An improvement in radiation absorption corresponds to enhancement of the heat transfer rate up to 59% while leading to a decline in mass transfer rate around 20%. The momentum, thermal and solutal boundary layers are all found to be boosted when the Soret effect is higher. For higher estimation of slip effect, the skin friction is found to decay around 23%. Also, as more time goes by the thermal and concentration boundary layers are enhanced.


Results obtained in this studied has also been compared and verified with available scientific literature and is found to be in good agreement, which establishes assurance in the numerical results reported in the study.
