A hydromagnetic free convection flow has been modeled and simulated. The flow is considered unsteady, near a moving infinite flat plate in a rotating fluid. For the radiative heat transfer to be significant, very high temperatures are involved rendering the problem highly non-linear. The simulation is based on a generic finite element scheme coupled with a stepwise Lagrange polynomial. The equations and other parameters entering into the description of the flow are transformed into interpretable postfix codes. Numerical values are computed for the temperature and velocity distributions. The results obtained are depicted graphically and discussed.
