Abstract: Convective flow is a self-sustained flow with the effect of the temperature gradient. The density is non-uniform due to the variation of temperature. The effect of the magnetic flux plays a major role in convective flow. The process of heat transfer is accompanied by mass transfer process; for instance condensation, evaporation and chemical process. Due to the applications of the heat and mass transfer combined effects in different field, the main aim of this paper is to do comprehensive analysis of heat and mass transfer of MHD unsteady second-grade fluid in the presence of time dependent generalized boundary conditions. The non-dimensional forms of the governing equations of the model are developed. These are solved by the classical integral (Laplace) transform technique/method with the convolution theorem and closed form solutions are developed for temperature, concentration and velocity. Obtained generalized results are very important due to their vast applications in the field of engineering and applied sciences. The attained results are in good agreement with the published results. Additionally, the impact of thermal radiation with the magnetic field is also analyzed. The influence of physical parameters and flow is analyzed graphically via computational software (MATHCAD-15). The velocity profile decreases by increasing the Prandtl number. The existence of a Prandtl number may reflect the control of the thickness and enlargement of the thermal effect.

Numerous engineering practices such as drag reduction, transpiration cooling, thermal retrieval of oil, and thermite welding demand a radical knowledge of heat transfer during viscous and non-Newtonian fluids’ flow in diverse geometries. Therefore, various attempts are used to analyze and update the existing investigations corresponding to the heat transfer phenomenon. Convective flow is a self-reliant flow with the effect of the heat transfer. The influence of magnetic flux plays a significant role in convective flow. In the literature, different theories are made to see the phenomenon of heat transfer analysis. Radiation, convection and conduction are three modes of heat transfer. Convection can be defined as heat transfer by the substance motion which may be air or water. It plays a central role in creating the weather clause on the plant. Convection consists of forced and natural convection. It happens when the medium divide the heat energy and on its own move. Heat is disbursed when air is pushed by a fan, sometime heat advection referred to the forced convection. Heat is animated to distress by means of itself hotness become cause of natural convection by means of shifting source heat. In mixed convection the dualistic natures, forced and natural recurrently are transpiring collectively. When external force is applied it will also moves. This is referred as mixed convection. Heat and mass are related to each other as heat transfer rate depends on mass transfer and mass transfer further depends upon concentration difference.
Tan and Masuoka  have analyzed the heat transfer on Second-order fluid in the porous medium. Aldose et al.  have investigated the vertical plate with mixed MHD convection implanted on a porous medium. The continuity interface condition for a cylinder embedded in a porous medium has been studied by Rashidi et al. . The oscillating flows of rotating Second-grade fluid has been discussed in Imran et al. . Exact solutions for accelerated flows of a rotating second-grade fluid have been investigated in Khan et al. . Bilal et al.  have analyzed the flow of Second-grade fluid generated by an accelerating flat plate. Farhad et al.  have discussed the closed structure for Second-grade fluid’ over a swaying vertical plate. For more details see [8–15]. Exact solutions serve in multiple ways for the specialized relevance of the streams [16–18]. Differential, rate, and integral fluids are basic categories of non-Newtonian fluid. The straight forward kind of differential fluid discussed the ordinary stresses known as the second-grade fluid. Relatively to the Newtonian fluids, a higher and complicated mathematical system exists for the non-Newtonian fluids. In 2010, Nazar et al.  have studied the second problem of stokes for second-grade fluids. In this model, the Laplace transform techniques helped us to acquire accurate solutions. Recently, Farhad et al.  have discussed the MHD fluid as electrically conducting and passing through the porous medium . Researchers have discussed the different fluids on MHD free convection radiative stream over various geometries [22–30]. Ali et al.  have investigated the exact solution for MHD second-grade fluid in porous surfaces. The study of flow in which liquids are electrically leading within sight of attractive fields is known as MHD. The principle of the MHD is helpful for the flow against laminar to turbulence. The MHD within view of diffusion and radiation are applications of the mass and heat transfer. This paper aims to research the convection flow of the second-grade fluid using the generalized boundary condition to get a definite solution using Laplace transforms.

4 Results and Discussion
In this paper, we investigated the unsteady uniform free convection flow (stream) of the second-grade fluid passing through an accelerated limitless plate with constant temperature inserted in the permeable medium. Analytical solutions can be achieved through the Laplace transform method. The graphical representation helps us to show the influences of different physical parameters such as angle of inclination and second grade parameter on velocity. Fig. 2 analyzes the variation of on the velocity with help of time. The large value of radiation parameter causes to increase in the fluid flow. The rate of energy transports of fluid increase due to an increase in the intensity of the radiation parameter and decrease the viscosity. Due to such behavior fluid moves faster and enhances the fluid velocities. Fig. 3 shows the influence of magnetic field on velocity components. This graphical representation indicates that an increase in the magnetic field, the velocity reduce due to Lorentz force. It behaves as a drag force. By increasing the parameter of the magnetic field, the Lorentz force also increases. Fluid flow on the boundary layer is slow down due to this force. Fig. 4 shows the behavior of Prandtl number. Specific heat and conductivity depend on It is the ratio of kinematic viscosity and thermal diffusivity. The thickness of the momentum and boundary layer is control by the Prandtl number. It is seen from the graph, decreasing the velocity, observed by increase the value of . The lower Prandtl number enhances thermal conductivity and increase the boundary layer. The permeability parameter of porous medium increase the velocities because the large value of reduce the resistance and increase the momentum which accelerates the fluid motion. The behavior of is shown in Fig. 5. Fig. 6 analyzes the behavior of the second-grade fluid parameter . The behavior clearly shows that the large values of have greater stability as compared to a lower value. Fig. 7 shows the impact on Schmidt number for velocity field versus time. It is defined as the ratio between the viscous diffusion rate and mass diffusion rate. Physically, Schmidt number is used to characterize fluid motion and it relates the thickness of hydro-dynamic layers and mass transfer boundary layers. The velocity and concentration boundary layers in Schmidt number almost coincide with each other, because diffusion of mass and momentum are comparable. It is observed that by the larger value of , the velocity becomes decreases. The effect of boundary layer thickness is discussed by changing the inclination angle on fluid velocity in Fig. 8. It shows that with increasing the value of , the velocity and boundary layer thickness becomes decrease when fluid is moving. As increases in time, the less value of the inclination angle has larger velocity. Fig. 9 shows the impact of on the velocity profile. It is noted that velocity increase as an increase of .
