Abstract

The effects of rotation and magnetic field on the Couette flow of an electrically-conducting fluid between two parallel plates have been discussed when one of the plates has been set into impulsive motion. Under the assumption of negligible induced magnetic field and the applied field being fixed relative to the moving plate, the governing momentum equations have been solved exactly, and the expressions for velocity and skin friction have been presented. The variations of velocity and skin friction have been discussed for different parameter values. The decrease in velocity due to rotation and its increase due to magnetic field have been shown.
