Abstract

The two-phase flow of a third grade fluid between parallel plates is considered in three different cases. The Homotopy Analysis Method (HAM) is used to solve the nonlinear differential equations and the solutions up to second order of approximation are provided in case of Couette, Poiseuille and Couette-Poiseuille flow. The velocity profile is used to study qualitatively the effect of the physical parameters and in particular, of the fluids' material constants.
