Abstract

The flow of an incompressible viscous fluid between two infinite harmonically oscillating plates is considered, when an oscillatory body force (having the same frequency as that of the plates) is applied in the direction of motion problem, detailed analytical expressions for the velocity field of the fluid, volume flow rate and stress at the plates have been obtained. It is found that the fluid velocity oscillates in time with the same frequency as that of the plates or the body force, but with a phase difference.
