Some geometric properties of a dusty fluid in MFD flows

  • Shesh Nath Singh
  • Ram Babu


By reformulating the basic equations governing the steady, compressible dusty fluid in magneto-fluid flows, certain geometric results of physical importance are obtained. The congruence of the stream lines and magnetic field lines have been taken as the orthogonal coordinate curves on the Maxwellian surfaces.
