The study of unsteady hydrodynamic free convective flow of a viscous incompressible fluid past a vertical porous plate in the presence of a variable suction has been made. Approximate solutions have been derived for the velocity and temperature fields, shear stress, and rate of heat transfer using perturbation technique. It is observed that main fluid(More)
Unsteady Couette flow of a viscous incompressible fluid between two horizontal porous flat plates is considered. The stationary plate is subjected to a periodic suction and the plate in uniform motion is subjected to uniform injection.

Hall effects on the MHD Couette flow between two infinite horizontal parallel porous plates in a rotating system under the boundary layer approximations have been studied. One of the plate is held at rest and the other one moves with uniform velocity. An exact solution of governing equation has obtained in closed form. Asymptotic behavior of the solution(More)
The effects of radiation on transient natural convection of a viscous incompressible fluid confined between vertical walls have been studied. We have considered the two different cases (i) flow due to the impulsive motion and (ii) flow due to accelerated motion of one of the walls. The governing equations are solved analytically using the Laplace transform(More)
The effect of radiation on unsteady Couette flow between two vertical parallel plates with ramped wall temperature have been studied. The fluid considered here is a gray, absorbing/emitting radiation but a non-scattering medium. An analytical solution of the governing equations has been obtained by employing Laplace transform technique. The influence of the(More)
