    Abstract: In this work, analysis of two-dimensional squeezing flow of a nanofluid under the influences of a uniform transverse magnetic field and slip boundary conditions is carried out using Chebychev spectral collocation method. The analytical solutions are used to investigate the effects of fluid properties, magnetic field and slip parameters on the squee... Show More

    Abstract: Gravity currents which are driven by body gravity forces, occur in the natural environment frequently, such as sea breezes, turbidity currents and avalanches, and sometimes cause natural and environmental disasters around the world. The cause of gravity currents is that the fluid of one density propagates into another fluid of a different density a... Show More
