We analyze the capillary rise dynamics for magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) fluid flow through deformable porous material in the presence of gravity effects. The modeling is performed using mixture theory approach and mathematical manipulation yields a nonlinear free boundary problem. Due to the capillary rise action, the pressure gradient in the liquid generates a stress gradient that results in the deformation of porous substrate. The capillary rise process for MHD fluid slows down as compared to Newtonian fluid case. Numerical solutions are obtained using a method of lines approach. The graphical results are presented for important physical parameters, and comparison is presented with Newtonian fluid case.
