In this paper, steady flow of a third-grade fluid in a porous half space has been considered. This problem is a nonlinear two-point boundary value problem (BVP) on semi-infinite interval. The solution for this problem is given by a numerical method based on the feed-forward artificial neural network model using radial basis activation functions trained with an interior point method. Moreover, to confirm the performance of the proposed technique, our results are compared with other available results. Numerical results demonstrate the validity and applicability of the technique.
