MHD rotating flow of a third-grade fluid on an oscillating porous plate. (English) Zbl 0993.76091

Summary: We consider a rotating flow of third-grade fluid on an oscillating porous plate in the presence of transverse magnetic field. An analytic solution of the governing nonlinear boundary-layer equations is obtained, and expressions for velocity profile are derived. It is found that external magnetic field has the same effect on the flow as the material parameters of the fluid. Further, symmetric and asymmetric nature of the solutions is discussed.
