The present work investigated the 2D steady-state boundary layer flow and heat transfer of an electrically conducting incompressible micropolar fluid over a continuously moving stretching surface embedded in a Darcian porous medium with a uniform magnetic field imposed in the direction normal to the surface. The stretching velocity is assumed to vary linearly with the distance along the sheet. The transformed coupled non-linear ordinary differential equations are solved numerically. The main velocity, transverse velocity, angular velocity and temperature are shown graphically. This study presents a Network Simulation Method solution using the Pspice algorithm database. The present study searched for and determined applications in metallurgical processes involving the cooling of continuous strips or filaments by drawing them through a quiescent fluid, in polymer flows in filtration systems and general non-Newtonian fluid mechanics. © 2014 King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals.
