Hydromagnetic oscillatory flow and heat transfer of a viscous liquid past a vertical porous plate in a rotating medium


Unsteady oscillatory flow of an incompressible, electrically conducting viscous liquid through a porous medium past an infinite vertical porous plate with constant suction has been studied. A transverse uniform magnetic field has been applied in a rotating frame of reference. The porous medium is bounded by a vertical plane surface. The temperature on the vertical surface fluctuates in time about a non-zero constant mean. The analytical expressions for the velocity, temperature, skin friction and Nusselt number are presented showing the effects of pertinent parameters. It is observed that steady part of the velocity field has two layers character viz thermal layer and suction layer, while the oscillatory part exhibits a multilayer character.
