Abstract

An exact solution is obtained for the steady MHD plane orthogonal stagnation-point flow of a homogeneous, incompressible, electrically conducting micropolar fluid over a rigid uncharged dielectric at rest. The space is permeated by a not uniform external magnetic field He and the total magnetic field H in the fluid is parallel to the velocity at infinity. The results obtained reveal many interesting behaviours of the flow and of the total magnetic field in the fluid and in the dielectric. In particular, the thickness of the layer where the viscosity appears depends on the strength of the magnetic field. The effects of the magnetic field on the velocity and on the microrotation profiles are presented graphically and discussed.
