Flow Through A Horizontal Porous Channel With A Harmonic Pressure Gradient

OT Gideon

Abstract


In this research work we provide a finite element solution to the problem of the flow through a horizontal channel with a harmonic pressure gradient. Results obtained shows that the velocity and temperature increases with time and that a turning point occurs in the temperature profile due to the viscous dissipation effect.

Keywords: Asymptotic techniques, Maxwell fluid, constantly accelerating plates and velocity fields.
