This paper is devoted to investigate the influences of thermal radiation and temperature-dependent fluid properties on convective slip flow of slightly rarefied fluids over a porous wedge plate embedded in a Darcy-Forchheimer porous medium. Using the similarity transformation, the governing system of non-linear partial differential equations is transformed into similarity non-linear ordinary differential equations which are solved by employing a numerical shooting technique with a fourth-order Runge-Kutta integration scheme. Numerical results are analyzed for the effect of different pertinent parameters on the flow and heat transfer characteristics.
