# ON THE POISEUILLE FLOW OF A THIRD GRADE FLUID IN AN HORIZONTAL CHANNEL

## Abstract

The work presents an analysis of the Poiseuille flow of a third Grade fluid in a horizontal channel. The dimensionless variable were used to dimensionalize the governing equations of the flow using suitable variables. A semi-analyticalmethod in form of perturbation method was use to obtain a solution of velocity distribution and temperature profile. The graphical results were used to study the non-Newtonian, Electrokinetic separation distance based on plate height, specific internal energy parameter of the model.
