Technion - Israel Institute of Technology Department of Mathematics ===================================== PDE AND APPLIED MATHEMATICS SEMINAR ===================================== DATE: Tuesday, March 20, 2012 SPEAKER: Shirley Abelman, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg TITLE: Oscillatory Couette flow of a Sisko fluid in a rotating system PLACE: Room 814, Amado Mathematics Building, Technion TIME: 14:30 ABSTRACT: In this talk a study of rotating oscillatory flow of an incompressible and electrically conducting Sisko fluid between two infinite non-conducting plates is presented. The upper plate is oscillating in its own plane, while the lower plate is kept stationary. The resulting non-linear problem is solved numerically. The effects of emerging parameters on the velocity are studied.
