Abstract

The characteristics of a hydromagnetic non-Newtonian squeeze film formed between parallel rectangular plates under the application on an external magnetic field are investigated. A specific hydromagnetic non-Newtonian Reynolds equation is derived via pplication of the hydromagnetic flow theory together with the micro-continuum theory. It is found that the coupled effects of electrically conducting fluids and micropolar fluids result in a higher load capacity and a longer approaching time with respect to the non-conducting Newtonian case. These improved characteristics become more pronounced as the magnetic Hartmann parameter, the coupling parameter, and the fluid-gap parameter are increased.
