ABSTRACT

Riga plate is the span wise array of electrodes and permanent magnets that creates a plane surface and produced the electromagnetic hydrodynamic fluid behavior and mostly used in industrial processes with fluid flow affairs. In cases where an external application of a magnetic or electric field is required, better flow is obtained by the involvement of the Riga plate. Riga plate acts as an agent to reduce the skin friction and enhance the heat transfer phenomena. It also diminishes the turbulent effects, so that it is possible to get an efficient flow control and it increases the performance of the machine. So the numerical investigation of the unsteady Couette flow with Hall and ion-slip current effects past between two Riga plates has been studied and the numerical solutions are acquired by using explicit finite difference method and estimated results have been gained for several values of the dimensionless parameter such as pressure gradient parameter, Hall and Ion-slip parameters, modified Hartmann number, Prandtl number, and Eckert number. In this article, the importance of the modified Hartmann number on the flow profiles is immense owing to the Riga plate. The expression of skin friction and Nusselt number has been computed and the outcomes of the relevant parameters on various distributions have been sketched and presented as well as graphically.
