ABSTRACT

An analysis of the hydromagnetic free convective flow past a vertical infinite porous plate in a rotating fluid is carried out. The temperatures involved are assumed to be very large so that the radiative heat transfer is significant, which renders the problem very non-linear even on the assumption of a differential approximation for the radiative flux. The temperature and velocity fields are computed using a generic software tool based on the Nakamura finite difference scheme. The genericity of the software tool is in the sense that it is a common solution to the category of time dependent laminar fluid flows expressed in one spatial coordinate. The input equations, together with other relevant parameters, are transformed into postfix code which will be farther interpreted in the computation process. The influence of the various parameters entering into the problem is shown graphically followed by a discussion of results.
