Hall effects on steady hydromagnetic flow in a rotating channel in the presence of an inclined magnetic field

Abstract

Effects of Hall current on a steady hydromagnetic (MHD) fully developed flow in a rotating environment within a parallel plate channel in the presence of an inclined magnetic field is studied. From an extension of literature [13] subject to a forced oscillation it is observed that the present paper is methodically more correct to work first in the steady state where forced oscillation becomes insignificant and then new results are expected for an unsteady MHD flow under the influence of a pulse-oscillator. Exact solutions of the governing equations are obtained in a closed form. The graphical representation for the velocity and the induced magnetic field are depicted graphically and the heat transfer at both the plates are presented in tables.
