• Temperature distribution in a laminar circular jet

The effect of frictional heat on the temperature distribution in a laminar circular jet has been studied. It is found from the analysis and the graphs that as the Prandtl number decreases from unity the overall temperature difference near the axis of the jet increases but as we move away from the axis it goes on decreasing. The reverse phenomenon happens in the case of increasing Prandtl number.

• Temperature distribution in a laminar plane wall jet due to variably heated wall

The heat transfer in a laminar incompressible plane wall jet due to a variably heated wall has been studied. It is assumed that the difference of temperatures between the wall and the issuing jet is inversely proportional to an arbitrary exponent of the distance from the slit. A similar solution of the energy equation is possible. The solutions, for arbitrary values of the Prandtl number and of the exponent are obtained. It is found that in some cases the heat transfer at the wall may become zero or negative.

• The wall jet flow of a conducting gas over a permeable surface in the presence of a variable transverse magnetic field

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.

• MHD slow motion past a sphere

The slow motion of an incompressible, viscous electrically conducting fluid, in the presence of a uniform aligned magnetic field, past a sphere is studied. Solutions obtained by Chester, using Stokes’ approximations, and by Blerkom and Ludford, using Ossen’ approximations, are reviewed. Expressions for stream functions are obtained for MHD Stokes’ flow and Oseen’ flow respectively.
