Abstract

The magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) and rotating flow of Maxwell fluid induced by an accelerated plate is investigated. The Maxwell fluid saturates the porous medium. Both constant and variable accelerated cases are considered. Exact solution in each case is derived by using Fourier sine transform. Many interesting available results in the relevant literature are obtained as the special cases of the present analysis. The graphical results are presented and discussed.
