Technical Paper


Here, axisymmetric flow of Jeffrey fluid by a rotating disk with variable thicked surface is studied. Heat transfer is discussed through Cattaneo–Christov heat flux model. Transformation procedure has been adopted in obtaining ordinary differential systems. Convergent series solutions are obtained. Flow, temperature and skin friction coefficient for various parameters of interest are graphically illustrated. The radial and tangential velocities are increasing functions of Deborah number.
