Plane Transverse MHD Flow through Porous Media
Abstract: Plane, transverse MHD flow through a porous structure is considered in this work. Solution to the governing equations is obtained using an inverse method in which the streamfunction of the flow is considered linear in one of the space variables. Expressions for flow quantities are obtained for finitely conducting and infinitely conducting fluids.
