Hall effects on oscillatory MHD boundary-layer flow under variable suction

  • 44 Accesses


The effects of Hall current on the oscillatory hydromagnetic boundary-layer flow under variable suction, past an infinite porous flat plate in the presence of a transverse magnetic field is discussed. The expressions for velocity and skin-friction are obtained and their variations for small and large frequency of oscillations are extensively discussed.
