Abstract.

An analysis is performed to study the unsteady incompressible flow over a moving vertical cylinder with constant heat flux and magnetic field applied normal to the surface. The nonlinear-coupled parabolic partial differential equations governing the flow and heat transfer have been solved numerically using a finite difference scheme of Crank-Nicolson type. The numerical results are presented for the velocity, temperature, local and average skin-friction and Nusselt number. It is observed that the presence as well as increase in the magnetic field leads to decrease in the velocity field and rise in thermal boundary thickness.
