This paper studies the effects of a partial magnetic field on the flow and heat transfer about a porous rotating disk. Using modem quasi-Newton and globally convergent homotopy methods, numerical solutions are obtained for a wide range of magnetic field strengths and injection and suction velocities. Results are presented graphically in terms of three nondimensional parameters. There is excellent agreement with previous work and asymptotic formulas.
