Hydromagnetic Convection At A Continuous Moving Surface
Abbreviated Journal Title
J. Sport Hist.
Exact solution for hydromagnetic convection at a continous moving surface with uniform suction is obtained. Flow of this type represents a new class of boundary-layer problems, with solutions substantially different from those for boundary-layer flow at a surface of finite length. Moreover, this is an exact solution of the complete Navier-Stokes equations (including, buoyancy force-term). The solutions for the velocity and skin friction are evaluated numerically for several sets of values of the parameters;G, the Grashof number,P, the Prandtl number, andM, the Hartmann number. It is observed that there is a reverse flow in the boundary-layer due to heating of the fluid (close to the moving surface). That is, whenT w>T ∞, the fluid in the boundary-layer will be heated up and thus the free convection currents will set in. Also, it is observed that, there is an increase in the skin friction (absolute) with increasingG, P andM.
