Abstract



Time independent flow of fluid between two concentric rotating spheres permeated by magnetic filed is studied. Prevailing mode of heat transfer is radiation while optically thin limit case is considered. The mathematical model of the problem with the induced magnetic field is developed and the resulting differential equations were solved using perturbed numerical technique. It is found that the magnetic field has no effect on the temperature distribution. However, when the magnetic field is introduced a decrease in velocity is obtained with an increase in either radiation parameter or Reynolds number.
