GHOSH, S.K. and BEG, Osman (2011). A new approach for flat plate hydromagnetic boundary layer outer flow with reference to a defect layer. Journal of Magnetohydrodynamics, Plasma and Space Research, 15 (3/4), 1-8.Full text not available from this repository.
We present a novel approach for analyzing hydromagnetic boundary layer outer flow along a flat plate. The motivation of this work is to develop a defect layer formulation with reference to a frictional velocity, U(ξ). for outer flow turbulence. Since frictional factor depends on turbulence for large Reynolds numbers, the defect layer should yield non-similarity solutions. To maintain the frictional velocity in the case of wall suction or blowing (injection), a similarity solution could be achieved provided the defect layer is recovered by the Reynolds number so that the recovery factor should be maintained. Using this approach a hydromagnetic Blasius equation is derived which may be solved numerically by for example the finite element method. The present work has important applications in fundamental magnetohydrodynamics research and in aerodynamics of conducting fluids.
