A free convective unsteady visco-elastic flow through porous medium of variable permeability bounded by an infinite vertical porous plate with variable suction, constant heat flux under the influence of transverse uniform magnetic field has been investigated in the present study. The permeability of porous medium fluctuates with time about the constant mean. Approximate solutions for mean velocity, transient velocity, mean temperature and transient temperature of non-Newtonian flow and skin friction are obtained. The effects of various parameters such as Pr (Prandtl number), Gr (Grashof number), M (Hartmann number), ω (frequency parameter) and k0 (mean permeability parameter) on the above are depicted, skin friction, amplitude and phase are shown graphically and discussed. Expressions for fluctuating parts of velocity ‘Mr’ and ‘Mi’ are found and plotted graphically, effects of different parameters on them are discussed.
