Computer extended series solution is used to analyse the problem of laminar flow in a channel with one porous bounding wall. The objective is to study the effect of non-zero tangential slip velocity on the velocity field, pressure gradient and mass transfer. The problem is also studied using power series method in conjunction with an unconstrained optimization procedure. The domain and rate of convergence of the series so generated are further increased by Pade’ approximants. The coupled diffusion equation in the boundary layer is solved using a finite difference scheme. The solution presented here is valid for much larger Reynolds number compared with earlier investigation.
