Abstract

The present paper studies the heat transfer flow of a third grade fluid between two heated parallel plates for the two models: constant viscosity model and Reynold's model. In each case the nonlinear momentum equation and the energy equation have been solved using HPM and PEM. Graphs for the velocity and temperature profiles are presented and discussed for the various values of parameters entering the problem. The dominant effect is governed by whether or not the fluid is non-Newtonian, the temperature effects being relegated to a less dominant role.
