Inertia effect in magnetic throughflow of viscous fluid in a slot between fixed surfaces of revolution
Abstract
A theoretical analysis is presented of the steady laminar flow of a viscous incompressible conducting fluid in a narrow slot between two surfaces of revolution with a common axis of symmetry in the presence of a constant magnetic field. A firstorder perturbation method is used to solve the MHD axisymmetric boundary layer equations. The effects of inertia terms in the equations of motion on flow properties are examined, and formulas for velocity components and pressure are obtained.
