The hydromagnetic free convective fluid flow over a continuously moving inclined plate embedded on a porous medium has been investigated. The periodic transverse suction velocity is applied to the surface due to which the flow becomes unsteady. The visco-elastic fluid flow is characterized by Walters liquid (model B'). Analytical solution of the problem is obtained by using multi-parameter perturbation technique. The expressions for velocity field, temperature field, concentration field, shearing stress at the plate are derived analytically. The fluid velocity and shearing stress are illustrated graphically to observe the visco-elastic effects in combination with other flow parameters involved in the solution. Also the temperature and concentration fields are not significantly affected by the visco-elasticity in comparison with Newtonian fluid flow mechanism.
