Examining The Effect of The Magnetic Field on Free Convection Flows in Liquid Metals, Electrolytes and Ionized Gases

Authors(2) :-Ruchi Gupta, Tarun Singh

This paper present research result of the behavior of unsteady free convection flow of a visco-elastic fluid past an infinite porous plate with constant suction under the action of the time depend plate temperature. A uniform magnetic field is applied transversely to the porous plate and the magnetic lines of forced are taken to be fixed relative to the fluid. It is assumed that the plate temperate fluctuates about a constant mean, in the magnitude but not in direction. The numerical results of the real part Mr and imaginary part Mi of the fluctuating part of the velocity are tabulated. It is determined that the velocity distribution inside the boundary layer lags behind the wall fluctuation by the constant angle . The results obtained in the paper are useful in analyzing the effect of the magnetic field on free convection flows in liquid metals, electrolytes, and ionized gases.
