The present problem is concerned with the axi-symmetrical flow of viscous Newtonian fluid over the membrane composed of spheroidal particles with impermeable core. Here, we analyzed the hydrodynamic permeability of the membrane when the steady, axi-symmetric, Newtonian fluid with uniform velocity is passing through the membrane along z-axis. The Stokes flow takes place in the presence of transversely applied magnetic field of uniform strength. A method named as cell model technique is used to reduce the problem of aggregates of particles into the problem of single particle. On the solid surface, no-slip condition and on the fluid–porous interface, continuity of velocity components & normal stress, discontinuity of shearing stress is employed. On the boundary of enveloping cell, we have employed Happel’s model, Kuwabara’s model, Kvashnin’s model, and Mehta–Morse’s model. The comparison of the hydrodynamic permeability and normalized mobility of the particles obtained by all above four well-known boundary conditions at hypothetical cell is shown graphically. In this work, we discussed about the various controlling parameters (fluid parameters) which can be used to control the hydrodynamic permeability of the membrane. Some previous results are also reviewed using the results of present problem and also shown the important comparisons with the former problems.
