Abstract

This article presents the exact solutions of the velocity and temperature fields for a steady fully developed magnetohydrodynamic flow of a viscous incompressible and electrically conducting fluid between two horizontal concentric cylinders. Our study focuses on the influence of the Hartmann number, Brinkman number, Péclet number and inner radius on the fluid temperature field, entropy generation rate and irreversibility ratio with the help of graphs and table.
