The paper aims at investigating the effects of Ohmic and viscous dissipations on the steady two-dimensional radiative boundary-layer flow of an incompressible, viscous, electrically conducting fluid caused by a linearly stretching sheet placed at the bottom of fluid saturated porous medium in the presence of uniform transverse magnetic field. The radiative heat flux is assumed to follow Rosseland approximation. The governing system of partial differential equations are converted to ordinary differential equations by using the similarity transformations, which are then solved numerically using shooting method with fourth order Runge-Kutta scheme. The dimensionless temperature distribution is computed for different thermo-physical parameters and presented graphically. The temperature gradient at the sheet and skin friction coefficient are derived numerically and presented through graphs
