Abstract

The objective of the paper is to investigate numerically the effect of transverse magnetic field on the flow of viscous fluid through porous spherical structure embedded in porous medium. Here in this paper, spherical porous structure has been taken. The motion of fluid is governed by Brinkman equation in porous medium. The matching conditions suggested by Ochoa- Tapia and Whitaker have been used. Streamlines are plotted and the effect of magnetic field has been shown using the variation of magnetic parameter.

Keywords: Porous sphere, porous medium, magnetic field
