This paper investigates steady-state solutions to MHD thermally radiating and reacting thermosolutal viscous flow through a channel with porous medium. The reaction
is assumed to be strongly exothermic under generalized Arrhenius kinetics, neglecting
the consumption of the material. Approximate solutions are constructed for the governing
nonlinear boundary value problem using WKBJ approximations. The results,
which are discussed with the aid of the dimensionless parameters entering the problem,
are seen to depend sensitively on the parameters.
