Abstract

The unsteady flow of a visco-elastic Maxwell fluid through a rectilinear pipe having its cross-section as a parallelogram under the influence of a axial pressure gradient (I) varying linearly with time , and (II) decreasing exponentially with time has been discussed in the present paper. Variables separable and Laplace transform methods have been used to solve the problem.
