Abstract

The problem of unsteady laminar, incompressible, electrically conducting micropolar fluid between inclined channel of rectangular cross-section was studied. It is assumed the flow is under the influence of transverse magnetic field and   the walls of the channel have constant temperatures and finite conductivity. The numerical solutions was obtained for the velocity, magnetic field profile, microrotation and temperature fields for various parametric conditions. These results are illustrated graphically to illustrate the effects of the physical parameters governing the flow. It is found that velocity, magnetic field profile and microrotations promote the motion of the fluid with increase the with wall conductance. It is also found that both velocity and magnetic field decreases with magnetic parameter increases.
