On nonlinear flows with slip boundary condition. (English) Zbl 1097.76007

Summary: The assumption that a fluid adheres to a solid boundary (‘no-slip’ boundary condition) is one of the central tenets of Navier-Stokes theory. However, there are situations wherein this assumption does not hold. In this communication we examine the effects of slip at the wall when an Oldroyd 6-constant fluid is considered in a channel. The slip assumed depends on the shear stress at the wall. Three nonlinear problems are solved using homotopy analysis method. The results for the velocity profiles are presented and discussed.
