The unsteady flow in an annulus due to a velocity applied to one of the boundaries is addressed. The fluid considered is non-Newtonian, incompressible and electrically conducting. The strength of the applied magnetic field is time-dependent. Both analytical and numerical approaches are presented and compared. The nonlinear effects on the velocity profile are shown.
