The steady two-dimensional stagnation point flow of a non-Newtonian Walters' B' fluid with slip is studied. The fluid impinges on the wall either orthogonally or obliquely. A finite difference technique is employed to obtain solutions. 1. Introduction. Some rheologically complex fluids such as polymer solutions, blood, paints, and certain oils cannot be(More)
The unsteady two-dimensional stagnation point flow of the Walters B’ fluid impinging on an infinite plate in the presence of a transverse magnetic field is examined and solutions are obtained. It is assumed that the infinite plate at y 0 is making harmonic oscillations in its own plane. A finite difference technique is employed and solutions for small and(More)
The similarity equations for the Bödewadt flow of a non-Newtonian Reiner-Rivlin fluid, subject to uniform suction/injection, are solved numerically.The conventional no-slip boundary conditions are replaced by corresponding partial slip boundary conditions, owing to the roughness of the infinite stationary disk. The combined effects of surface slip (λ),(More)
