Abstract: 

An analysis is presented to investigate the influences of pressure work on MHD natural convection flow along a uniformly heated vertical wavy surface. The governing equations are transformed into dimensionless nonsimilar equations by using set of suitable transformations and solved numerically by the implicit finite difference method, known as Keller-box scheme. Numerical results for the velocity profiles, temperature profiles, skin friction coefficient, the rate of heat transfers, the streamlines and the isotherms are shown graphically and skin friction coefficient and rate of heat transfer have been shown in tabular form for different values of the selective set of parameters.
