MHD Unsteady Memory Convective Flow through Porous Medium with Variable Suction

2013 Journal of Applied Fluid Mechanics  
A free convective unsteady visco-elastic flow through porous medium of variable permeability bounded by an infinite vertical porous plate with variable suction, constant heat flux under the influence of transverse uniform magnetic field has been investigated in the present study. The permeability of porous medium fluctuates with time about the constant mean. Approximate solutions for mean velocity, transient velocity, mean temperature and transient temperature of non-Newtonian flow and skin

The effects of various parameters such as P r (Prandtl number), G r (Grashof number), M (Hartmann number), ω (frequency parameter) and k 0 (mean permeability parameter) on the above are depicted, skin friction, amplitude and phase are shown graphically and discussed. Expressions for fluctuating parts of velocity 'M r ' and 'M i ' are found and plotted graphically, effects of different parameters on them are discussed.
