MHD free-convection and mass-transform flow through a porous medium. (English) Zbl 0718.76125
Summary: The effect of a uniform transverse magnetic field on the free-convection and mass-transform flow of an electrically-conducting fluid past an infinite vertical plate for uniformly accelerated motion of the plate through a porous medium is discussed. The magnetic lines of force are assumed to be fixed relative to the plate. Expression for the velocity field and skin-friction are obtained by the Laplace transform technique. The influence of the various parameters, entering into the problem, on the velocity field and skin-friction is extensively discussed.
