    ABSTRACT: This paper is concerned with the steady flow of a second-grade fluid between two porous disks rotating eccentrically under the effect of a magnetic field. A perturbation solution for the velocity field is presented under the assumption that the second-grade fluid parameter β is small. It is also studied the effect of all the parameters on the horizontal force per unit area exerted by the fluid on the disks. It is found that the x- and y-components of the force increase and decrease, respectively, when the second-grade fluid parameter β and the Hartmann number M increase. It is seen that the forces in the x- and y-directions on the top disk increase with the increase of the suction/injection velocity parameter P but those on the bottom disk decrease. It is shown that the force acting on the top disk is greater than that acting on the bottom disk in view of the axial velocity in the positive z-direction. It is observed that the increase in the Reynolds number R leads to a rise in the horizontal force.
