Pulsatile Flow of a Dusty Fluid Through Porous Media in an Open Rectangular Channel

K.R. Madhura, B. J. Gireesha, C.S. Bagewadi


An analytical study of unsteady dusty fluid flow in porous media through an open rectangular channel under the influence of pulsatile pressure gradient is considered. Flow analysis is carried out in Frenet frame field system and exact solutions of the problem are obtained by solving the partial differential equations using Laplace and Finite Fourier sine transform methods. Further graphs are drawn for different values of Reynolds number and on basis
of these the conclusions are given. Finally, the expressions for skin-friction are obtained at the boundaries.
