The unsteady two-dimensional flow of a viscoelastic second-grade fluid impinging on an infinite plate is considered. The plate is making harmonic oscillations in its own plane. A finite difference technique is employed and solutions for small and large frequencies of the oscillations are obtained. 1. Introduction. In the past two decades, the importance of(More)
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 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 (í(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)
