In this paper the exact solution of the unsteady natural convection radiating flow in an open ended vertical channel is studied. The channel is stationary with non-uniform temperature. The governing equations are fractional differential equations with the Caputo time-fractional derivative. Closed form analytical solutions for the temperature and velocity fields are obtained by using the Laplace transform technique. These solutions are expressed with the Wright function, the Robotnov and Hartley function. The effects of the fractional order and physical parameters on temperature and fluid velocity are presented graphically.
