Abstract: Free convection flow involving coupled heat and mass transfer occurs frequently in several areas of chemical engineering and manufacturing process areas. A few representative fields of interest in which combined heat and mass transfer plays an important role are designing of chemical processing equipment, formation and dispersion of fog, distribution of temperature and moisture over agricultural fields and fruit trees, crop damage due to freezing and environmental disorders. Thermal radiation has become a significant branch of engineering sciences and is an essential aspect of various scenarios in mechanical, aerospace, chemical and solar power engineering. The flow of Newtonian electrically - conducting fluids is also of great interest in high speed aerodynamics, astronautical plasma flows, MHD boundary layer control, MHD accelerator technologies and the applications are many from the view of science and technology. Free convection flow involving heat transfer occurs frequently in an environment where difference between land and air temperature can give rise to complicated flow patterns. Many processes in engineering and manufacturing sectors, the product production occurs at high level of temperature and acknowledges radiation heat transfer for the design of pertinent equipment. Nuclear power plants, gas turbines and various propulsion devices for aircraft, missiles, satellites and space vehicles are few such examples in the engineering areas. Thermal radiation has become a significant branch of engineering sciences and is an essential aspect of various scenarios in mechanical, aerospace, chemical and solar power engineering. The study of effects of magnetic field on free convection flow is often found importance in liquid metals, electrolytes and ionized gasses. At extremely high temperatures in some engineering devices, gas, for example, can be ionized and so becomes an electrical conductor.This thesis mainly deals with the extensive analysis of situation in MHD free convective flow past vertical porous plate
