In micro-devices, inertial forces tend to decrease, while surface effects dominate the flow and viscous effects. the numerical approach is becoming popular to describe fluid flow characteristics of slip flow through microchannels by Navier-Stokes equations in conjunction with the slip boundary. A study has been made numerically to understand the effect of magnetic induction on the degree of slip which depends upon the flow behaviour index, slip length, Reynolds no. In the present study, various observations have been made on the magnetohydrodynamic effect on non-Newtonian slip flow velocity profiles through microchannels to reveal the effect of flow behaviour index and slip coefficient. This work reveals that the slip coefficient plays a major role in the flow, and the externally applied magnetic field affects both centerline and slip velocity.
