In this study, the unsteady magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow and heat trasnfer of a dusty, viscoelastic, incompressible and electrically conducting fluid in an inclined channel in the presence of thermal radiation and heat source has been investigated. The non-dimensional equations governing the flow are solved by parametric perturbation technique under the prescribed boundary conditions. The solutions of the equations governing the flow are obtained for fluid velocity, dust particle velocity, temperature and dust particle temperature profile.The results have been expressed graphically and in tabular form to observe the effects of different flow parameters. The effect of the various parameters entering in the governing equations on the flow are evaluated numerically and discussed with the help of graphs and tables.
