### RADIATIVE MHD COMPRESSIBLE COUETTE FLOW IN A PARALLEL CHANNEL WITH A NATURALLY PERMEABLE WALL

**ABSTRACT**

The paper pertains to investigations of thermal radiation effects on dissipative MHD Couette flow of a viscous compressible Newtonian heat- generating fluid in a parallel plate channel whose one wall is stationary and naturally permeable. Saffman’ slip condition is used at the clear fluid-porous interface. The fluid is considered to be optically thick and the radiative heat flux in the energy equation is assumed to follow Rossel and approximation. The momentum and energy equations have closed form solutions. The effects of various parameters on thermal regime are analyzed through graphs and tables.
