      The solution of the steady laminar incompressible nonsimilar magneto-hydrodynamic boundary layer flow and heat transfer problem with viscous dissipation for electrically conducting fluids over two-dimensional and axisymmetric bodies with pressure gradient and magnetic field has been presented. The partial differential equations governing the flow have been solved numerically using an implicit finite-difference scheme. The computations have been carried out for flow over a cylinder and a sphere. The results indicate that the magnetic field tends to delay or prevent separation. The heat transfer strongly depends on the viscous dissipation parameter. When the dissipation parameter is positive (i.e. when the temperature of the wall is greater than the freestream temperature) and exceeds a certain value, the hot wall ceases to be cooled by the stream of cooler air because the ‘heat cushion’ provided by the frictional heat prevents cooling whereas the effect of the magnetic field is to remove the ‘heat cushion’ so that the wall continues to be cooled. The results are found to be in good agreement with those of the local similarity and local nonsimilarity methods except near the point of separation, but they are in excellent agreement with those of the difference-differential technique even near the point of separation.

    • Composite expansion solution of fingero-imbibition in double phase flow through underground porous medium

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The phenomenon of fingero imbibition due to simultaneous occurrence of imbibition and instabilities in double phase flow through homogeneous porous media is discussed by the method of composite expansion. The injected liquid is less viscous and preferentially wetting with respect to the porous media, and coefficient of saturation is considered as constant.

    • Unsteady hydromagnetic motion of a rotating conducting fluid

      M R Raghavachar

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The combined effects of stratification and magnetic field on the unsteady motion of a viscous, electrically conducting fluid between two rotating disks are analysed. Solutions are obtained for the linearized equations under Boussinesq approximation and steady state solutions are deduced from them. The results are compared with those obtained by Loper and Benton and Balanet al. Graphs are presented for the steady state velocity, magnetic field and temperature distributions.

    • Steady flow of a viscous liquid in a porous elliptic tube

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Flow of a viscous-liquid in a porous tube of elliptic cross-section is studied using the generalized momentum equation. As a particular case, flow of the liquid in a tube of a circular cross-section is obtained. It is observed that the classical Darcian effect is realized only in a core very near to the axis of the tube while the non-Darcian phenomenon is felt predominantly near the boundary of the tube.
