Abstract

The governing nonlinear equation for the unsteady flow of an incompressible fourth grade fluid is modelled. The fluid is also subjected to a magnetic field. In addition, we investigate steady flow between parallel plates with one plate at rest and the other moving parallel to it at constant speed with a suction velocity normal to the plates. Boundary conditions play a significant role. We construct the numerical solution to the sixth order nonlinear differential equation. It is found that the velocity increases with the increase in the material parameters of the fourth grade terms of the fluid.
