Boundary layer flow and melting heat transfer of a Prandtl fluid over a convective surface in the presence of fluid particles suspensions has been investigated. The converted set of boundary layer equations are solved numerically by RKF-45 method. Obtained numerical results for flow and heat transfer characteristics are deliberated for various physical parameters. Furthermore, the skin friction coefficient and Nusselt number are also presented. It is found that, the heat transfer rates are advanced in occurrence of nonlinear radiation camper to linear radiation. Also it is noticed that, velocity profile increases by increasing Prandtl parameter but establishes opposite results for temperature profile.
