This study deals with the problem of steady incompressible laminar flow in the presence of a magnetic field. The perturbation method is applied for the solution to the nonlinear differential equation. Numerical simulations and MATLAB software are used to analyze the problem. The focus of this paper is to investigate the effect of a magnetic field on the fluid velocity and porosity. The effect of large as well as small Reynolds numbers is also seen. © 2016 by Begell House, Inc.
