The present paper contains a mathematical analysis of the mixed convection three dimensional steady laminar flow of a viscous incompressible fluid past an infinite vertical porous plate. The three-dimensional flow is caused by the transverse sinusoidal suction at the plate. A constant heat flux is prescribed at the plate. Assuming the plate velocity to be uniform, analytical solutions are obtained for the flow field, the temperature field and the skin-friction. Effects of Prandtl number and
