Self-similar problems in the magnetohydrodynamics of non-newtonian fluids

L. K. Martinson

Certain self-similar solutions are found to the problem of the shear MHD flow of a non-Newtonian fluid with a power rheological law for injection of the fluid by means of a nonconducting plate lying on the fluid. These solutions have the form of shear waves, the fronts of which propagate with the velocity of motion of the medium in the direction of injection.
