A continuum two-phase fluid-particle model accounting for particle-phase stresses and a body force due to the presence of a magnetic field is developed and applied to the problem of two-dimensional laminar hydromagnetic flow of a particulate suspension over a horizontal surface in the presence of a gravity field. Analytical solutions for the velocity distributions and the skin-friction coefficients of both phases are reported. Two cases of wall hydrodynamic (velocity) conditions corresponding to stationary and oscillatory velocity distributions are considered. Numerical evaluations of the analytical solutions are performed and the results are reported graphically to elucidate special features of the solutions. The effects of the particle-phase stresses and the magnetic field are illustrated through representative results for the horizontal velocity profiles, fluid-phase displacement thickness, and the complete skin-friction coefficient for various combinations of the physical parameters. It is found that the presence of the magnetic field increases the fluid-phase skin-friction coefficient for various particulate volume fraction levels while the presence of the particle-phase viscous stresses reduces it for various particle-to-fluid density ratios.
