  • Abstract

    The flow of an unsteady incompressible electrically conducting fluid with uniform distribution of dust particles in a constricted channel has been studied. The medium is assumed to be porous in nature. The governing equations of motion are treated analytically and the expressions are obtained by using variable separable and Laplace transform techniques. The influence of the dust particles on the velocity distributions of the fluid are investigated for various cases and the results are illustrated by varying parameters like Hartmann number, deposition thickness on the walls of the cylinder and the permeability of the porous medium on the velocity of dust and fluid phase.
