Abstract

The entrance region flow of a Casson fluid in an annular cylinder has been investigated numerically without making prior assumptions on the form of velocity profile within the boundary layer region, which is determined by a cross sectional integration of the momentum differential equation for a given distance from the channel entrance. Using the macroscopic mass balance equation, the thickness of the core has been obtained at each cross section of entrance region of annuli for different values of Casson number and for various values of aspect ratio.
