The Network Simulation Method (NSM) has been used to study the variations with velocity of suction, hall effect, Reynolds and Hartmann number, particle concentration and Eckert number on the unsteady MHD Couette Flow and heat transfer of a dusty and electrically conducting fluid between parallel plates in the presence of an external uniform magnetic field and uniform suction and injection. The solutions are obtained with the network model proposed and the electric circuit simulation program PSpice. The fluid is acted upon by a constant pressure gradient and an external uniform magnetic field is applied perpendicular to the plates. Due to the presence of uniform suction and injection, the Hall Effect is not dismissed. The NSM is applied to solve the steady-state and transient problems of flow and heat transfer for both the fluid and dust particles. This method requires only discretization of the spatial co-ordinates, while time remains a real continuous variable. Velocity and temperature are studied for different values of the viscosity and magnetic field parameters and for different particle concentrations and upper wall velocities.
