The effects of the magnetic field, Mach number and the permeability parameter on the wall jet flow (radial or plane) of an electrically conducting gas spreading over a permeable surface have been investigated. Taking the Prandtl number of the fluid as unity and assuming a linear relationship between viscosity and temperature, it is found that similar solutions for the velocity distribution exist for a specified distribution of the normal velocity along the wall and the corresponding distribution of the transverse magnetic field. Previous non-magnetic flow results have been improved by adopting a new and simple transformation of variables.
