  • Abstract

    An analysis was carried out to study the motion of an incompressible viscoelastic dusty fluid through a horizontal circular pipe placed under a transverse magnetic field such that the pressure gradient is varying in magnitude. The partial differential equations governing the flow are converted into ordinary differential equations which are then solved numerically by finite element method. The effects of the viscoelastic and magnetic field parameter on the velocity profile of both the fluid and particles are thoroughly examined.
