ABSTRACT

An investigation of the steady two dimensional hydromagnetic viscous flow between two rotating eccentric cylinders in the presence of a radial magnetic field is attempted. The effects of the magnetic field on the flow has been investigated for various parameters including the eccentric parameter, the modified Reynolds number and the square of the Hartmann number. The stream function and the pressure distribution are calculated. The results presented graphically reveal the effect of magnetic field enhances the load carrying capacity of the journal bearing.
