Abstract

The present paper studies the heat transfer flow of a third grade fluid between two heated parallel plates for the constant viscosity model. Three flow problems, namely plane Couette flow, plane Poiseuille flow and plane Couette-Poiseuille flow have been considered. In each case the non-linear momentum equation and the energy equation have been solved using the homotopy perturbation method. Explicit analytical expressions for the velocity field and the temperature distribution have been derived.
