This article addresses the heat and mass transfer effects in the boundary layer flow over a plate. Mathematical modelling is based upon the constitutive equations of the Erying-Powell fluid. The problem formulation takes into account the Soret and Dufour effects and convective boundary conditions. A numerical solution to the nonlinear flow problem is presented. The impact of the emerging parameters is analyzed.
