The present study is devoted to investigate the effects of Soret and Dufour on the mixed convection flow, heat and mass transfer over a stretching sheet in the presence of viscous dissipation, Ohmic heating, thermal radiation in porous medium. Numerical solutions for the coupled governing equations are obtained by using the fifth-order Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg method with shooting technique. Important features of flow, heat and mass transfer characteristics for different values of the physical parameters are analyzed and discussed. Numerical results reveal that the magnetic field and inertia coefficient reduce the skin friction but reverse effects are seen on local Nusselt number.
