Hydromagnetic effects on the three-dimensional flow past a porous plate

Brief Reports


Hydromagnetic effects on the three-dimensional flow of an electrically conducting viscous incompressible fluid past a porous plate with periodic suction has been analysed. The uniform flow is subjected to a transversely applied magnetic field. The mathematical analysis is presented for the hydromagnetic boundary layer flow neglecting the induced magnetic field. Approximate solutions for the components of velocity field and the skin-frictions due to them are obtained and discussed with the help of a graph and tables.
