Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this paper, we investigated theoretically the flow of an incompressible 2D couple stress fluid. Here, we considered the flows for which the stream function is given by ψ = y + f(x) eky, where k is a real constant and f(x) is a function to be determined.We obtained the exact expressions for the stream function and thus the velocity and pressure for different values of k and for the different values of viscosities.
