We analyzed in this paper the effect of radiation on melting from a vertical plate embedded in porous medium in MHD mixed convection with viscous dissipation under non-Darcy (Forchheimer) conditions. Both aiding and opposing flows are considered in the study. The numerical results were obtained for velocity and temperature variation in melting region and presented in a graphical form. Heat transfer in the melting region has also been studied and the effect of melting parameter and radiation on Nusselt number are presented in graphical form.
