    Abstract: Numerical analyses have been carried out for magnetohydrodynamic flow between a rotating and a stationary disk, whose radii are sufficiently large in comparison with the gap between the two parallel coaxial disks. The gap is filled with an electric conducting fluid and a uniform axial magnetic field is imposed. The magnetic Prandtl number is assume... Show More

    Abstract: The paper introduces the incompressible Newtonian fluid with heat transfer in a vertical cylindrical tube under the assumptions of long wavelength and low Reynolds number. The system of mass, momentum, and energy equations are solved analytically. The velocity and temperature field are obtained for two-phase densities. The growth of vapour bubble a... Show More
