ABSTRACT : The steady two-dimensional laminar MHD free convective flow of a viscous incompressible electrically conducting fluid past over a porous substrate attached to a non-linearly stretching sheet embedded in a Extended-Darcy-Forchheimmer Porous  medium, in the presence of a uniform transverse magnetic field with viscous dissipation is investigated. The boundary layer equations are transformed to ordinary differential equations with the help of similarity transformation and to solve these equations, the method used is numerical computation with bvp4c, a MATLAB program. The velocity and temperature profiles are computed and discussed numerically and presented through graphs for various parameters like, Magnetic and Permeability parameters, Forchheimer parameter, index parameter n, Prandtl number and Eckert number etc.
