|Abstract:||In this paper a general solution of the unsteady state laminar flow of a visco-elastic fluid of second order type between two parallel plates has been obtained, under usual assumption of no-slip condition at the boundary. The solution is obtained not by using any of the regular methods, but by employing the concepts of Duhamel's theorem. The velocity profiles are found to be more steep and further, as time passes through, the profiles are significantly distributed. Further, as time elapses, the skin friction on the plates also increases. The applications are many and are of interest, as it approximates to the flows that are commonly encountered in technological and engineering practices.|
