Abstract

A numerical solution for unsteady hydromagnetic free-convection currents of a viscous incompressible and electrically conducting fluid induced by a vertical moving infinite plate is considered for constant heat flux at the plate. Velocity and skin-friction have been worked out for various values of the parameters occuring into the problem. It is found that magnetic parameter has a retarding effect on the velocity of air and water, while skin-friction increases with it.
