Abstract

A stability analysis is made for the laminar flow of a layer of a viscous and electrically conducting fluid down an inclined plane in a transverse magnetic field. It is found that the effect of the magnetic field, revealed through the Hartmann number, is to stabilize the flow. A simpler and physically clearer approximate treatment of the same problem based on the principle of local balance is also given. The results agree quite satisfactorily with the exact analysis.
