This paper is devoted to the study of the two-dimensional flow of a Johnson-Segalman fluid in a planar channel having walls that are transversely displaced by an infinite, harmonic travelling wave of large wavelength. Both analytical and numerical solutions are presented. The analysis for the analytical solution is carried out for small Weissenberg numbers.(More)
In the present work, the mathematical model of wire coating in a straight annular die is developed for unsteady second grade fluid in the form of partial differential equation. The Optimal Homotopy Asymptotic Method (OHAM) is applied for obtaining the solution of the model problem.. This method provides us a suitable way to control the convergence of the(More)
The magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow of third grade nanofluid between coaxial porous cylinders was investigated in this work. Two types of series solutions were presented for constant and variable viscosity. The resulting nonlinear coupled equations were solved by employing homotopy analysis method (HAM). The convergence of the series solutions has been(More)
This paper provides a comparative study of the Variational Iteration Method (VIM) and the Adomian Decomposition Method (ADM) to obtain analytic approximations of a nonlinear problem that arises in the thin film flow of a third grade fluid on a moving belt. An excellent agreement is observed between the series solutions for the velocity field obtained by(More)
