In this work, non-Newtonian fluid properties in a non-Darcy porous channel, specifically Darcy-Forchheimer porous channel is investigated with focus on a numerical analysis of Eyring-Powell type of non-Newtonian fluid. The unsteady state problem is considered under the influence of thermal radiation and transversely applied magnetic field. The governing non-linear partial differential equations were non-dimensionalized and then solved using Crank-Nicolson concept. Significance of non-Newtonian fluid properties as well as other fluid parameters is considered on the velocity, temperature and concentration profiles with the aid of graphs.
