Abstract

The effect of Hall current on the steady magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) flow of an electrically conducting, incompressible Burgers' fluid between two parallel electrically insulating infinite planes is studied. The MHD flow is generated by applying constant pressure gradient. An external uniform magnetic field normal to the disks is applied. The disks are kept at two different constant temperatures. Exact solutions are obtained for the governing momentum and energy equations. The effects of Hartmann number M, Reynolds number Re, Prandtl number Pr, Eckert number Ec, pressure gradient d p / d x and Hall parameter η are examined.
