The flow of a solution between parallel plates is considered. The bottom plate is porous, while the top one is an impermeable solid. A computer program based on the control volume approach was developed to analyse the flow and concentration fields. The effects of the slip at the porous wall on the velocity and particle concentration distributions were investigated. It was observed that as the slip increases, the concentration on the porous wall decreases and the maximum velocity moves towards the porous wall. The concentration on the porous wall increases in the flow direction. This increase in the particle concentration along the porous wall may cause a reduction of the porosity and hence a variation in the suction rate along the porous wall. In order to take this effect into account, a linearly varying transverse velocity along the porous wall was considered. The results were compared with the data available in the literature.
