In this paper, the steady flow of an incompressible conducting micropolar fluid through a rectangular channel with uniform cross-section in the presence of a transverse magnetic field with suction and injection at the side walls is considered. Neglecting the induced magnetic and electric fields, velocity and micro-rotation vectors are obtained in terms of a Fourier series. The volumetric flow rate is calculated and the effect of micro-rotation parameter and geometric parameter, Hartmanns number on this are graphically shown and discussed.
