The Laminar Boundary Layer on a Moving Cylindrical Rod with an Applied Magnetic Field
The steady, nonsimilar MHD boundary layer flow over a moving cylindrical rod has been investigated. The nonlinear coupled partial differential equations governing the flow have been solved numerically using the Kellar box method. The results indicate that the magnetic field enhances the skin friction coefficient, while it reduces the velocity profile.
