In this paper, we investigate the combine effects of magnetic field on the MHD flow of a third grade fluid through inclined channel in the presence of a uniform magnetic field with the consideration of heat transfer. Three different problems, Couette flow, Poiseuille flow and Couette-Poiseuille flow have been analysed. The non-linear differential equations governing the flow and heat transfer are solved for the velocity and temperature profile by employing the regular perturbation technique and the results are presented graphically.
