The effect of radiation on combined free and forced convection flow of an elactrically conducting viscous fluid through an open-ended vertical channel permeated by a uniform transverse magnetic field has been considered. The temperature in the wall has been supposed to very linearly with distance and there is no heat flux on the boundaries. Assuming optically thin limit, the experience for volocity, induced magnetic field, temperature and the non dimensional flow-rate are obtained and the influence of radiation on these quantities are observed either graphically or in tabulated forms.
