Regularity for MHD Second Grade Fluid in a Porous Space

S. Rahman, T. Hayat, and Hamed H. Alsulami

Abstract—The purpose of present paper is to establish the regularity of classical solution for second grade fluid. We consider unsteady flow passing through the porous medium. The incompressible fluid is taken between two rigid plates. We apply the magnetic field of the system and Darcy's law is performed due to porous medium. In addition uniqueness of classical solution is also verified. Finally neglecting the effect of porosity we obtain a unique classical solution of MHD second grade fluid.

Index Terms—Porous medium, second grade fluid, classical solution.
