In this study, effects of numerous physical quantities like dissipation, thermal radiation, and induced magnetic field on magnetohydrodynamic Casson fluid flow through a vertical plate is addressed. The non-dimensional multivariable governing equations are solved numerically by by means of Runge-Kutta method along with shooting technique. The behavior of velocity, temperature and induced magnetic fields for different physical aspects is discussed through graphical illustrations. The influence of physical constants like Casson fluid (β), Magnetic parameter Μ, Soret number Sc, Prandtl number Pr, Magnetic Prandtl number etc., on induced magnetic field, temperature and velocity is analyzed. Interesting observation of this study is that the effect of velocity distribution obeys the physical nature of well-known Newtonian and all other Non-Newtonian fluids.
