MHD flow of a Newtonian fluid over a stretching sheet: an approximate solution
An approximate solution to the problem of steady laminar flow of a viscous incompressible electrically conducting fluid over a stretching sheet is presented. The approach is based on the idea of stretching the variables of the flow problem and then using least squares method to minimize the residual of a differential equation. The effects of the magnetic field on the flow characteristics are demonstrated through numerical computations with different values of the Hartman number.
