Abstract

This paper investigates the exact solutions for the thin film flow of PTT fluid having zero solvent viscosity, in two cases: (i) down an inclined plane and (ii) on a vertically moving belt. The problems are solved taking into consideration both the linear and exponential PTT models. Expressions for important physical quantities such as velocity, volume flow rate and average velocity are also reported.
