In all the above cases, the fluid models have been considered as Newtonian. But the mechanisms of non- Newtonian fluid flows are used in various manufacturing processes and hence play an important role in modern technology and industrial applications.

The present work concentrates on the similarity solutions for **MHD** **flow** of a non-Newtonian fluid to study the **flow** of an electrically conducting Sisko fluid. The similarity analysis of governing equation is discussed using the deductive group theoretic method which is already been successfully applied to several non-linear problems [Abd-el-Malek et al (2002); Parmar and Timol (2011)].

There are many problems in science and engineering where the solution shows a boundary layer character. Near the boundary the gradient is large in contrast with the smooth behaviour in the central core. A uniform grid is, therefore, not suitable for a numerical solution. **MHD** **flow** problems belong to this category where a velocity and induced magnetic field profiles get flattened in a transverse **flow**. In the present paper an optimized grid has been generated using interpo- lating wavelets. The results are compared with those obtained using uniform grid, the finite element method and also from the analytical solution.

In the interval [0, 2] as the numerical value of Sc increased the velocity of **flow** increased and after a particular value of y in that interval velocity **flow** starts decreasing. From Figure 1 to 10 the velocity **flow** profile decreases or increases as the corresponding parameters increases. Effects of prandtl number, thermal radiation parameter, buoyancy ratio, radiation limit, Schmidt number with numerical computation over temperature are presented from Figure.11-14. From all these diagrams we observed that as the parameters increased the temperature profile decreases except absorption of radiation parameter R. The influence of Prandtl quantity Pr on the profile of temperature distribution shown in Figure 11. It is because, the smaller numerical values of Pr increases the thermal conductivity. So the heated surface differ away rapidly than for higher values of Pr. Therefore, rate of heat transfer reduced due to thick layer of boundary. This figure shows that the temperature declines with the growth of Prandtl numeral Pr. Figure.14 is diagram for distinct numerical values of the absorption of radiation parameter R. It can be notice, in the interval [0, 2.8] temperature profile increased and after that interval **flow** decreased with an increase of the numerical values for R. Figures.17 and Figure.18 are the effects of Sc and Kr over the concentration respectively. As the corresponding numerical values increased the **flow** profile decreased in the situation of Sc parameter and increased in the case of Kr respectively.

Mittal [25] also studied some features of two dimensional magnetohydrodynamic flows, in steady state and under force free magnetic fields, by using the phenomenon of superposability and self-superposability. Shruti Rastogi, B. N. Kaul and Sanjeev Rajan [31] have taken the work of Mittal et al. further. In their work they dis- cussed about some magnetic fields with conservative Lorentz force in confocal paraboloidal coordinates. They showed that under some conditions magnetohydrostatic configuration may be formed by self-superpoable **flow** of an electrically conducting incompressible fluid permeated by a magnetic field with conservative Lorentz force.

We consider a FEM-BEM coupling approach for the approximate solution of the **MHD** **flow** through a circular pipe under the influence of a transverse magnetic field when the outside medium is also electrically conducting. Coupled equations with coupled boundary conditions are solved first on the boundary of the pipe by transforming the modified Helmholtz equations and Laplace equation. Then, velocity and induced magnetic field inside the pipe are calculated by considering SUPG typed stabilized finite element method, and induced magnetic on the external region is calculated with constant boundary ele- le 1 values of the velocity and induced current.

T he case of variation of **flow** rate with respect to various **flow** entities in situation of **MHD** **flow** over a moving infinite vertical porous plate in the presence of thermal radiation has been examined in detail in this paper. It is observed that, as the pore size decreases the **flow** rate is found to be decreasing. In each of these illustrations, it is seen that the applied transverse magnetic field influences the **flow** rate significantly. Further, as the magnetic intensity increases the **flow** rate is found to be inversely proportional. Also, increase in the intensity of the magnetic field contributes to the decrease in **flow** rate. For a constant pore size of the bounding surface and the frequency of excitation, increase in the magnetic intensity amounts to the decrease in the **flow** rate. Also, a back **flow** is observed in certain cases and is illustrated graphically. Further, decrease in Grashoff number (Gr) contributes to the increase in the **flow** rate.

In fluid dynamics, the stagnation point **flow** and **flow** over a stretching surface are important in theoretical and applications point of view. In fluid dynamics, stagnation is a point in a **flow** field where the local velocity of the fluid is zero. Stagnation points exist at the surface of objects in the **flow** field, where the fluid is brought to rest by the object. Stagnation **flow** towards a stretching sheet is investigated by Wang [7].
