On the problem of unsteady viscous MHD flow past an infinite porous flat plate with constant suction
Abstract
A solution is presented to the problem of an incompressible laminar viscous electricallyconducting flow past an infinite porous flat insulated plate moving parallel to itself with an arbitrary timedependent velocity with uniform suction at the plate in the presence of a transverse uniform magnetic field. The pressure is assumed to be uniform and the initial distribution of velocity is an exponential form in the region occupied by the fluid on one side of the plate. Laplace transformation is used to solve the governing differential equation of the problem. An expression is derived for solving the problem for large times, where the velocity given by this expression is independent of the initial distribution of velocity. Some special cases are treated.
