This article presents an unsteady incompressible Upper Convected Maxwell (UCM) fluid flow with temperature dependent thermal conductivity between parallel porous plates which are maintained at different temperatures varying periodically with time. Assume that there is a periodic suction and injection at the upper and lower plates respectively. The governing partial differential equations are reduced to non linear ordinary differential equations by using similarity transformations and the solution is obtained using differential transform method. The effects of various fluid and geometric parameters on the velocity components, temperature distribution and skin friction are discussed in detail through graphs.
