NSM solution for unsteady MHD Couette flow of a dusty conducting fluid with variable viscosity and electric conductivity

P. Eguia, J. Zueco, E. Granada and D. Patino    

Abstract: The effects of dependence on temperature of the viscosity and electric conductivity, Reynolds number and particle concentration on the unsteady MHD flow and heat transfer of a dusty, electrically conducting fluid between parallel plates in the presence of an external uniform magnetic field have been investigated using the network simulation method (NSM) and the electric circuit simulation program Pspice. The fluid is acted upon by a constant pressure gradient and an external uniform magnetic field perpendicular is applied to the plates. We solved the steady-state and transient problems of flow and heat transfer for both the fluid and dust particles. With this method, only discretization of the spatial co-ordinates is necessary, while time remains as a real continuous variable. Velocity and temperature are studied for different values of the viscosity and magnetic field parameters and for different particle concentration and upper wall velocity.
