Pulsating magnetohydrodynamic flow in an annular channel

  • N. Rudraiah


Pulsating laminar flow of a viscous incompressible electrically conducting fluid in an annular channel between two infinitely long circular cylinders under a radial impressed magnetic field is considered. The solutions of magnetohydrodynamic equations have been obtained on the assumption that the space between two cylinders is small compared to their mean radius. The solutions were also obtained on the assumption of small magnetic Reynolds number with special consideration of those for low and high frequencies.
