Abstract

The effect of magnetic field on the flow and heat transfer past a continuously moving porous plate in a stationary fluid has been analysed. The governing boundary layer equations have been reduced to a set of nonlinear ordinary differential equations using similarity transformations. The resulting boundary value problem has been solved numerically. The effects of magnetic and suction (or injection) parameters on the velocity and temperature profiles as well as on the skin friction and heat transfer coefficients have been studied. It has been observed that the effect of magnetic field is to increase the wall skin friction while the reverse occurs in the case of Nusselt number.
