The simultaneous effects of mass injection and magnetic field on the heat generation due to viscous dissipation is investigated analytically. The present findings are in general agreement with the temperature measurements of Chang-Yi Wang [1]. Results indicate larger reductions in maximum temperature and a significant increase in the heat take off by porous boundaries, if magnetic field is present. The most striking feature of this investigation is the marked improvement in the temperature reduction with the application of the electromagnetic force.
