On the Exact Solutions of Couple Stress Fluids

Full Text PDF


Exact solutions of the momentum equations of couple stress fluid are investigated. Making use of stream function, the two-dimensional flow equations are transformed into non-linear compatibility equation, and then it is linearized by vorticity function. Stream functions and velocity distributions are discussed for various flow situations.
