ABSTRACT:
The thermal instability of a couple-stress fluid acted upon by uniform vertical magnetic field and rotation heated from below is investigated. Following the linearized stability theory and normal mode analysis, the paper through mathematical analysis of the governing equations of couple-stress fluid convection with a uniform vertical magnetic field and rotation, for the case of rigid boundaries shows that the complex growth rate of oscillatory perturbations, neutral or unstable for all wave numbers, must lie inside a semi-circle, in the right half of a complex -plane, where Q is the Chandrasekhar number, is the Taylor number, and F is the couple-stress parameter, which prescribes the upper limits to the complex growth rate of arbitrary oscillatory motions of growing amplitude in a rotatory couple-stress fluid in porous medium heated from below, which provided significant improvement to the result of Khanna and Banyal.
