Numerical study of unsteady flow of a second order liquid past a porous infinite flat plate with uniform suction

  • Tapas Ranjan Roy


The two-dimensional unsteady flow of a second order visco-elastic liquid of finite depth over an infinite porous flat plate has been studied. The suction velocity normal to the plate is taken to be uniform and directed towards the plate and the external flow velocity is considered to be exponentially decaying with time. The governing equation of motion has been solved numerically over an IBM 1130 electronic computer. Shearing stress at the plate has also been sought.
