Main Article Content
In this paper, the steady flow and heat transfer of an incompressible electrically conducting micropolar fluid through a parallel plate channel is investigated. The upper and lower plates have been kept at the two constant different temperatures and the plates are electrically insulated. Applied magnetic field is perpendicular to the flow, while the Reynolds number is significantly lower than one i. e. considered problem is in induction-less approximation. The general equations that describe the discussed problem under the adopted assumptions are reduced to ordinary differential equations and three closed-form solutions are obtained. The velocity, micro-rotation and temperature fields in function of Hartmann number, the coupling parameter and the spin-gradient viscosity parameter are graphically shown and discussed.
