Steady-state magneto- and electrohydrodynamic flows in a non-newtonian fluid

L. K. Martinson

Steady-state gradient and shear MHD and EHD flows in flat channels are discussed for non- Newtonian fluids obeying the rheologic law proposed by V. V. Novozhilov. The solutions for the fluid velocity distributions in the channels are reduced to quadratures. The effect of the various problem parameters on the nature of the flows is analyzed. The limiting transitions to flows of a Newtonian fluid and to hydrodynamic flows are discussed.
