Hall Effect on Oscillatory Hydromagnetic Free Convective Flow of a Non-Newtonian Fluid past an Infinite Vertical Porous Flat Plate with Heat Sources / Sink and Constant Suction

Abstract—This paper deals with the hall effect on oscillatory hydromagnetic free convective flow of non-Newtonian fluid past an infinite vertical porous flat plate with heat sources/sinks. In the formulation part, equations of continuity, motion and energy have been developed. These equations have been made dimensionless with the introduction of non-dimensional parameters concerned and solved applying complex variable technique under the boundary conditions employed. Profiles of primary velocity, secondary velocity and temperature have been plotted after computerization with the numerical values of the non-dimensional parameters. The values of skin frictions and the rates of heat transfer have been entered in the tables. It is observed that both the primary and secondary velocity increase with the increase of the non-Newtonian parameters (Rc) as well as the reciprocal of the porosity parameters (1/K*). The temperature of the fluid falls with the Prandtl number (Pr).
