The present study is conducted by keeping in view the applications of heat transfer through a wall jet flow in the field of engineering, biomedicine, industries and cooling-heating systems. We have investigated the laminar and steady flow of an incompressible Eyring-Powell fluid through a wall jet with viscous dissipation. To obtain the numerical solution of the problem by the RK coupled with the shooting method, we have utilized boundary layer approximation to reduce the governing equations along with appropriate boundary conditions. Fluid parameter m acts as a resistive force for the flow of the fluid. Variation in the temperature profile due the Prandtl number also predicts that for its higher values the rate of heat transfer decreases. The viscous dissipation parameter known to be the local Eckert number helps to obtain increased thermal boundary layer thickness and a decrease in the rate of heat transfer.
