Hall effects on an oscillatory MHD flow in the Stokes problem past aninfinite vertical porous plate. I.
Abstract
Hall effects on the hydromagnetic free convection flow of an electrically conducting incompressible viscous fluid past a steadily moving vertical porous plate has been analysed when the free stream oscillates in magnitude. The flow is subjected to a constant suction, through the porous plate, and the difference between wall temperature and the freestream is moderately large causing the free convection currents. The mathematical analysis is presented for the hydromagnetic boundary layer flow without taking into account the induced magnetic field. This is a valid assumption for small magnetic Reynolds number. Approximate solutions for the components of velocity field and temperature field and their related quantities are obtained. The influence of various parameters entering into the problem is extensively discussed with the help of graphs and tables.
