Abstract: This paper describes the heat transfer analysis with thermal radiation on the two-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow in a channel with porous walls. The upper-convected Maxwell (UCM) fluid fills the porous space between the channel walls. The corresponding boundary layer equations are transformed into ordinary differential equations by means of similarity transformations. The resulting problems are solved by employing homotopy analysis method (HAM). Convergence of the derived series solutions is ensured. The effects of embedded parameters on the dimensionless velocity components and temperature are examined through plots. The variation of local Nusselt number is also analyzed.
