In this paper, the combined effects of magnetic fields, buoyancy force, thermal radiation, viscous and Ohmic heating on turbulent hydromagnetic flow of an incompressible electrically conducting fluid over a moving vertical plate in a rotating system is investigated numerically. The governing equations are reduced to non-linear ordinary differential equations using the time-averaged approach known as Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations (or RANS equations) and tackled by employing an efficient Runge-Kutta Fehlberg integration technique coupled with shooting scheme. Graphical results showing the effects of various thermophysical parameters on the velocity, temperature, local skin friction and local Nusselt number are presented and discussed quantitatively.
