Abstract

This work examines the effects of an external uniform magnetic field and of an internal heat source or sink on the steady mixed convection in the fully developed flow of a micropolar fluid filling a vertical channel under the Oberbeck-Boussinesq approximation. The two boundaries are kept at different uniform temperatures. The velocity, the microrotation, the temperature and the induced magnetic field are analytically obtained. A selected set of pictures and Tables are reported in order to illustrate the influence of the internal heat parameter on the trend of the motion and in particular on the reverse flow.
