Paper Title:
MHD Flow of Shear-Thinning Fluid over a Rotating Disk with Heat Transfer
  Abstract

This paper studied the Magneto hydrodynamic (MHD) flow and heat transfer of an electrically conducting non-Newtonian fluid over a rotating disk in the presence of a uniform magnetic field. The steady, laminar and axial-symmetric flow is driven solely by the rotating disk, and the incompressible fluid obeys the inelastic Ostwald de-Waele power-law model. The governing differential equations were reduced to a set of ordinary differential equations by utilizing the generalized Karman similarity transformation. The nonlinear two-point boundary value problem is solved by multi-shooting method. Numerical results show that the magnetic parameter and the power-law index have significant effects on the swirling flow and heat transfer.
