Abstract: This work presents the solution of incompressible, magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) flow through a circular pipe for a fourth grade fluid under an exponentially applied radial magnetic field. The nonlinear governing equations along with the boundary conditions are first non-dimensionalized and are solved analytically using Galerkin method. Results are presented graphically and emerging parameter of interest are discussed.
