The knowledge of visco-elastic fluids past a porous media plays vital role in many scientific and engineering applications. Most frequently this flow was basically utilized in the fields of petroleum engineering concerned with the oil, gas and water through reservoir to the hydrologist in the analysis of the migration of underground water. This process in chemical engineering is used for both purification and filtration. Its application is also found in the process of drug permeation through human skin. To recover the water for drinking and irrigation purposes the principles of this flow are followed. Natural convection flow over a vertical surface embedded in porous media also comes across in many engineering areas like the design of nuclear reactors, catalytic reactors, and compact heat exchangers, geothermal energy conversion, the use of fibrous materials, thermal insulation of buildings, heat transfer from storage of agricultural products which generate heat as a result of metabolism, petroleum reservoirs, nuclear wastes, etc.
