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.‎
