**ABSTRACT**

An analysis is performed to study the flow of an incompressible viscous fluid past an exponentially accelerated infinite vertical plate in the presence of thermal radiation with uniform heat flux. The dimensionless governing equations are solved using Laplace transform technique. The velocity and temperature are studied for different physical parameters like radiation parameter, time and an accelerating parameter a. It is observed that velocity increases with increasing values of a or Gr but decreases with increasing radiation parameter N.

**Key words:** exponential, accelerated vertical plate, Radiation, heat flux.
