The present study is devoted to the problem of oscillatory convective flow in the presence of viscous dissipation around different positions of a sphere. The system of differential equations governing the flow phenomenon is transformed into dimensionless form by using suitable group of variables and then transformed into convenient form for integration by using primitive variable formulation. Numerical simulation based on finite difference method is carried out to analyze the mixed convection flow mechanism. Special focus is given on the transient shear stress and the rate of heat transfer characteristics and their dependency on various dimensionless parameters that is mixed convection parameter λ, Prandtl number Pr, dissipation parameter $N,$ and angular frequency parameter $\omega $. The angles $X=30deg,90\u2009deg$, and $360deg$ are the favorable positions around the sphere for different parameters, where the transient rate of shear stress and heat transfer is noted maximum. Later, the obtained results are presented graphically by using Tech Plot-360 and compared with the previous work given in the literature.
