Abstract: 

The study of unsteady hydrodynamic free convective flow of a viscoelastic incompressible fluid past a vertical porous plate in the presence of a variable suction has been studied. Approximate solutions have been derived for the velocity and temperature fields, shear stress and the rate of heat transfer using perturbation technique. The velocity components, the amplitude and the tangent phase shift of the shear stress and the rate of heat transfer are presented graphically for various viscoelastic parameters with the combination of the other flow parameters.
