Abstract

When a homogeneous magnetic field is applied parallel to the flow direction, physical quantities such as velocity, angular velocities of fluid and suspended particles, shear stress and pressure are theoretically obtained for two fundamental magnetic fluid flows. The fundamental dynamical flow characteristics of a magnetic fluid are comprehensively clarified by investigation of the differences which some dimensionless numbers (micropolar effect parameter, magnetic effect parameter, size effect parameter, size effect parameter and so on) have on these two kinds of flow.
