Abstract

The present paper deals with the unsteady laminar flow of an incompressible, electrically conducting dusty visco-elastic fluid between two parallel stationary plates. The flow is caused by an exponentially decaying pressure gradient .A uniform magnetic field is applied on the lower plate at different inclinations. We observe that the motions of the fluid and dust particles are affected by the variation of some significant physical parameters of the visco-elastic fluid. Mass concentration number, time-relaxation parameter, visco-elastic parameter, intensity of the applied magnetic field and time are some of indispensable physical parameters of fluid flow. The governing equations of motion have been solved by analytical method and the results have been discussed with the help of graphs. The velocity is observed to be symmetrical with the centre of the channel of fluid flow as well as of dust particles. The velocity of the fluid particles and that of the dust particles go on decreasing with an increase in the values of mass concentration number, magnetic field intensity, visco-elastic parameter and time whereas the velocity profiles of fluid and dust particles are observed to be increasing with an increase in the time- relaxation parameter.
