ABSTRACT:
The influence of viscosity, viscoelasticity and medium permeability on the stability of stratified Rivlin-Ericksen viscoelastic fluid is examined for viscoelastic polymeric solutions in the simultaneous presence of a uniform horizontal magnetic field (H, 0, 0) and uniform horizontal rotation ??? ?? ??. These solutions are known as Rivlin-Ericksen fluids and their rheology is approximated by the Rivlin-Ericksen constitutive relations, proposed by Rivlin and Ericksen [13]. The effects of Coriolis forces on the stability is chosen along the direction of the magnetic field and transverse to that of the gravitational field (o,o,-g). The system is found to be stable for all wave numbers for stable stratifications and unstable for unstable stratifications for the stratifications in density, viscosity, viscoelasticity, medium permeability and medium porosity. The system can be completely stabilized by large enough magnetic field, which was unstable in the absence of magnetic field; provided the initial configuration is top-heavy density wise. The kinematic viscosity and kinematic viscoelasticity have damping effects on the growth rates with the increase in kinematic viscosity and kinematic viscoelasticity, respectively, for a fixed wave number. The medium permeability has enhancing effects on the growth rates with its increase for a fixed wave number. The above results have also been shown graphically.
