Energetic Balance for the Flow Induced by a Constantly Accelerating Plate in a Second Grade Fluid
Abstract: Dissipation, power due to the shear stress at the wall and the boundary layer thickness corresponding to the unsteady flow of a second grade fluid, due to a constantly accelerating plate, are established in exact and approximate forms. The changing of the kinetic energy with time is also determined from the energetic balance. Exact expressions of the same entities for Newtonian fluids are recovered as limiting cases of general results.
