An analytical approach for the study of effect of thermal radiation on steady boundary layer flow with variable thermal conductivity due stretching sheet has been developed. To describe radiative heat flux, Rosseland diffusion approximation energy equation is used. The governing equation reduced to similarity boundary equation using suitable transformation and then solved by using homotopy analysis method. The velocity profiles and temperature profiles are compared numerically by using Fehlburg
