Abstract

The fully developed electrically conducting micropolar fluid flow between two vertical porous parallel plates is studied in the presence of temperature dependent heat sources including the effect of frictional heating and in the presence of a magnetic field. Profiles for velocity, microrotation and temperature are presented for a wide range of Hartmann numbers and the micropolar parameter. The skin friction, couple stress and Nusselt numbers at the plates are shown in the tables.
