ABSTRACT

We introduce the magnetohydrodynamic equations of a second-grade, non-Newtonian, incompressible, two-dimensional fluid flow in a porous medium. Exact solutions are discussed when the particular form of the stream function is in terms of the unknown function with the exponential factor that gives the reversed and nonreversed flows. The results are compared with the existing second-grade and Newtonian flows.
