In the present investigation, we study the influence of a transverse magnetic field on the one-dimensional motion of an electrically conducting micropolar fluid through a porous medium. Laplace transform techniques are used to derive the solution in the Laplace transform domain. The inversion process is carried out using a numerical method based on Fourier series expansions.

Numerical computations for the temperature, the microrotation and the velocity distributions as well as for the induced magnetic and electric fields are carried out and represented graphically.
