An attempt is made to study the classical Von Kármán flow problem for Jeffrey fluid by using a generalized non-similarity transformation. This approach is different from Von Kármán's evolution of the flow. Here, physical quantities are allowed to develop non-axisymmetrically. The three-dimensional equations of motion for Jeffrey fluid are treated analytically yielding the derivation of a closed form solution for the velocity field. Exact expressions forthe vorticity components, shear stresses and boundary layer thickness are also presented.
