Numerical solutions of MHD rotating flow and heat transfer over a permeable shrinking sheet

Mohd Ezad Hafidz Hafidzuddin*, Roslinda Nazar

ABSTRACT:     This study deals with the steady magnetohydrodynamics rotating boundary layer flow and heat transfer of a viscous fluid over a permeable shrinking sheet. Similarity transformations have been used for reducing the partial differential equations into a system of ordinary differential equations. The transformed ordinary differential equations are solved numerically using a finite-difference scheme. The effects of the magnetic parameter M, suction parameter s, rotating parameter λ, and Prandtl number Pr on the velocity and temperature fields are presented graphically and discussed in detail.
