Abstract : The flow of an elastico-viscous Maxwell fluid between two parallel plates, the upper one of which is fixed and the lower one moving in its own plane, was studied. It was assumed that a magnetic field perpendicular to the plates is present and the fluid is electrically conducting, elastico-viscous of the Maxwell type and incompressible. Laplace transforms were used to get the velocity field in the fluid and skin friction at the lower plate. We used throughout rationalized M.K.S. system of unit. (Author)
