The onset of magnetoconvection (known as Rayleigh-Bénard-Chandrasekhar convection) in two relaxation time viscoelastic liquids is studied here without seeking explicit recourse to a normal stress formulation as is usually done in these studies. Magnetoconvection refers to the flow of fluid in the presence of both thermal gradients (Rayleigh-Bénard convection) and a magnetic field. When these two effects are combined, they can lead to interesting and complex patterns of fluid motion. Understanding magnetoconvection in viscoelastic liquids is crucial for various industrial and scientific applications. The hyperbolic-type of linear momentum equation is decomposed into two first-order equations in time by cleverly separating the viscoelastic effect from the other effects in a clever manner as reported in a recent paper. The results of Maxwell, Rivlin-Ericksen, Walters? liquid B, and Newtonian liquids are obtained as limiting cases of the present study. This research contributes to the understanding of magnetoconvection in viscoelastic liquids by using a novel approach that decouples the viscoelastic effect from other influences. The results obtained shed light on the behaviour of various types of viscoelastic materials and provide valuable insights for practical applications in fields such as materials science, engineering, and geophysics.
