A solution for fully developed pulsatile flow of a couple stress fluid through a circular, rigid tube of infinite length has been obtained in the form of a Bessel-Fourier series. The velocity profiles and flow rates for different values of flow parameters have been shown graphically. It has been observed that velocity and flow rate are almost in phase with pressure gradient for low values of pulsatile Reynolds number alpha (alpha 2 = 0.1). For higher values of alpha(= 2) a phase difference of… CONTINUE READING
