Abstract: The present work aims to investigate the effects of transverse magnetic field on thin film flow of a viscous non-Newtonian third grade fluid past an inclined flat plate. Flow is governed by a nonlinear ordinary differential equation which is solved by two perturbation techniques, namely, the traditional perturbation method and the homotopy perturbation method. The results obtained by two techniques are found to be in good agreement. Graphs are plotted to discuss the physics of the flow.

Keywords: Thin film flow, non-Newtonian fluid, MHD, perturbation methods
