In this paper, we study the effects of nonlinear convection and thermophoresis in steady boundary layer flow over a vertical impermeable wall in a non-Darcy porous medium. Both the fluid temperature and the solute concentration are assumed to be nonlinear while at the wall, both the temperature and concentration are maintained at a constant value. A similarity transformation was used to obtain a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations, which were then solved numerically using the Matlab bvp4c solver. A comparison of the numerical results with previously published results for special cases shows a good agreement. The effects of the nonlinear temperature and concentration parameters on the velocity and heat and mass transfer are shown graphically. A representative sample of the results is presented showing the effects of thermophoresis on the fluid velocity and heat and mass transfer rates. It is found among other results, that the concentration profiles decreased with increasing values of the thermophoretic parameter.
