Hydromagnetic Convection Flow through a Porous Medium in a Rotating Channel

Abstract

An initial value investigation of the hydromagnetic convection flow of a viscous electrically conducting fluid through a porous medium in a rotating parallel plate channel has been made using boundary‐layer‐type equations. The exact solution of the governing equations is evaluated and the structure of the different boundary layers formed has been discussed in detail. The ultimate quasi‐steady state velocity and temperature fields are numerically computed for various values of the governing parameters. Also the shear stress on the plates and the Nusselt numbers have been computed.
