In this work, the Micropolar fluid flow and heat transfer past a horizontal stretching sheet through porous medium is studied including the effect of radiation. A uniform magnetic field is applied transversely to the direction of the flow. Viscous dissipation effects are included in the energy equation. The governing differential equations of the problem have been transformed into a system of non-dimensional differential equations which are solved numerically by Element free Galerkin Method. The velocity, microrotation and temperature profiles are presented for different parameters. Excellent correlation of selected results has been achieved with the finite element method. Finally excellent validation of the present numerical results has been achieved with the solutions of Hassanien and Gorla . The present problem finds significant applications in polymeric sheet processing at high temperatures, magnetic materials processing, hydromagnetic control of conducting polymeric sheets etc.
