Abstract

The rotating flow of a third-grade fluid on an oscillating porous plate in the presence of a transverse magnetic field is considered. An analytic solution of the governing nonlinear boundary layer equation is obtained. Expressions for the velocity profile are established. It is found that an external magnetic field has the same effect on the flow as the material parameters of the fluid. Further the symmetric and asymmetric nature of the solutions is discussed.
