The present paper is concerned with the study of MHD free convective flow of a visco-elastic (Kuvshinski type) dusty gas through a porous medium induced by the motion of a semi-infinite flat plate under the influence of radiative heat transfer moving with velocity decreasing exponentially with time. The expressions for velocity distribution of a dusty gas and dust particles, concentration profile and temperature field are obtained. The effect of Schmidt number (Sc), Magnetic field parameter (M) and Radiation parameter (N) on velocity distribution of dusty gas and dust particles, concentration and temperature distribution are discussed graphically.
