We deal with the study of momentum and heat transfer characteristics in a second-grade rotating flow past a porous plate. The analysis is performed when the suction velocity normal to the plate, as well as the external flow velocity, varies periodically with time. The plate is assumed at a higher temperature than the fluid. Analytic solutions for velocity, skin friction, and temperature are derived. The effects of various parameters of physical interest on the velocity, skin friction, and temperature are shown and discussed in detail.
