The unsteady MHD convective flow of an electrically conducting fluid embedded in a porous medium along moving infinite vertical plate with ramped wall temperature and radiation in a rotating system is investigated here. The fluid taken is incompressible and viscous. The governing PDE’s of the model are solved by using integral transform method. The analytical solutions for the velocity, concentration and temperature are obtained. The expressions for skin friction, rate of mass transfer and heat transfer near the plate are obtained. The effects of various parameters like porosity of the medium, magnetic field, Soret number, thermal radiation, rotation, radiation and Hall current on the flow field are discussed. It is observed that velocity increases with the increase in the porosity parameter K. It reveals that a porous medium having large permeability supports the movement of the fluid in the system. Also, it is noticed that Hall parameter reduces the resistive effect of the applied magnetic field. Such a study assumes importance because both rotation and Hall current induce secondary flow in the flow-field. The results of the research may be useful in many industrial applications.
