AB The steady flow of an incompressible and electrically conducting micropolar fluid flow through a parallel porous plates is studied. A constant pressure gradient is assumed along the direction of the fluid and the flow is subjected to a uniform magnetic field perpendicular to the flow direction. The governing equations are reduced to nonlinear coupled ordinary differential equations using similarity transformations. The resulting equations are then solved numerically by quasilinearization technique. The profiles of velocity and microrotation components are presented for different micropolar fluid parameters and magnetic parameter. The skin friction at the plates has also been calculated.
