    Abstract

    The combined effects of viscous dissipation and Joule heating on steady magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and slip flow of an electrically conducting viscous incompressible non-Newtonian Bingham fluid over a porous rotating disk in the presence of Hall and ion-slip currents is studied. An external uniform magnetic field is applied in the z-direction and the fluid is subjected to uniform suction. Numerical solutions are obtained for the governing momentum and energy equations. Results for the details of the velocity as well as temperature are shown graphically and the numerical values of the skin friction and the rate of heat transfer are entered in tables.
