ABSTRACT

One dimensional flow with heat transfer of a pseudoplastic fluid between two infinite horizontal parallel plates is investigated. The thermophysical properties of the fluid are assumed to be constant and numerical solution using the finite element method, along with the corresponding exact solution for the fluid velocity and the fluid temperature is obtained. The effect of variation of the governing parameters is studied using figures and tables. It is found that the numerical solution agrees well with the corresponding exact solution and that the fluid velocity, together with the fluid temperature, increases with increasing values of the governing parameters.
