We analyzed in this paper the problem of mixed convection along a vertical plate in a non-Newtonian fluid saturated non-Darcy porous medium in the presence of melting and thermal dispersion-radiation effects for aiding and opposing external flows. Similarity solution for the governing equations is obtained for the flow equations in steady state. The equations are numerically solved by using Runge-kutta fourth order method coupled with shooting technique. The effects of melting (M), thermal dispersion (D), radiation (R), magnetic field (MH), viscosity index (n) and mixed convection (Ra/Pe) on fluid velocity and temperature are examined for aiding and opposing external flows.
