ABSTRACT


A viscous incompressible electrically conducting fluid flow is considered in a parallel plate horizontal channel in the presence of an inclined magnetic field. The channel is rotating with uniform angular velocity about an axis normal to the plates. A porous material of finite thickness is attached to the lower impermeable plate which is stationary and kept at a constant temperature T0, while the upper impermeable plate is moving with a uniform velocity and kept at a constant temperature T1. For the strong applied magnetic field, the Hall current effects are considered. In the energy equation viscous dissipation and Ohmic dissipation effects are also taken into account. Exact solutions are obtained for the flow, magnetic field and temperature distributions. Effects of the pertinent parameters on the velocity distribution, temperature distribution, induced magnetic field and rate of heat transfer are depicted graphically and discussed.
