    • Abstract


      The hydromagnetics of a linear, steady, axisymmetric flow of an electrically conducting homogeneous fluid confined between two identical rotating electrically insulated parallel plates are analysed for a free shear layer situation whenα2E−1/3 whereα2 is the rotational magnetic interaction parameter andE is the Ekman number. A few cases involving subtle changes of the imposed azimuthal velocity boundary condition are solved to elucidate the meridional electric current flow.
