The novelty of the present model is to consider the fluid flow along an upper horizontal surface of a paraboloid of revolution (<em>uhspr</em>) with the porous medium. This physical phenomenon is described by a set of coupled non-linear ODEs by using suitable scaling analysis. The ODEs along with the boundary conditions are solved numerically. Influence of various flow parameters on momentum, thermal and concentration boundary layers is discussed graphically. It is noticed that the variable thickness of the surface has a leading consequence on the boundary layer progression along the surface. Moreover, the results of this study are not only useful for industrial applications but also present a basic understanding of the physical model.https://jacm.scu.ac.ir/article_14030_13b60530e24b1fdd4b605c2ce4c791ce.pdf
