The flow and heat transfer characteristics of a laminar free convection flow of a viscous incompressible and electrically conducting fluid from rotating axisymmetric round-nosed bodies of uniform surface temperature in the presence of a uniform transverse magnetic field are theoretically studied. Numerical solutions of the boundary layer equations are obtained using a very efficient finite difference method known as Keller-box scheme developed by Keller and Cebeci [11]. The theory is applied to a rotating hemisphere. Figs 5, refs 14.
