The combined effects of applied magnetic field, thermal radiation and suction on the flow and free convective heat transfer of a viscous, incompressible, electrically conducting dusty fluid past a flat plate with ramped temperature are studied. The governing partial differential equations for momentum and energy transfers, for both the fluid and particle phases, are solved using Laplace transform technique. The inverse Laplace transform is obtained numerically using Matlab. A comparison of Numerical solution and analytical solution for energy transfer is made which shows an excellent agreement. The effects of pertinent flow parameters are analyzed with the help of graphs and tables.
