The s teady flow of an incompressible couple stress fluid in a two dimensional uniform channel with stenosis under the influence of a magnetic field has been investigated. Assuming the stenosis to be mild, the flow equations have been analy tically solved using the slip condition and expressions for the resistance to flow and wall shear stress have been derived. The effects of various parameters on these flow variables have been studied. It is found that the resistance to flow as well as the wall shear stress increase with the height of the stenosis and decrease with the couple stress and magnetic parameters. The effects of other parameters on resistance to flow and the wall shear stress have been considered.
