A variant of Taylor's (1962)  scraper problem, in which, the lower plate rotates is considered. The non-linear partial differential equations governing the flow of a second grade fluid are modeled and solved by using the domain perturbation technique considering the angular velocity of the rotating plate as a small parameter. Also the rheology of the second grade fluid is examined by depicting the profiles of the velocity, stream function, pressure and stress fields.
