Abstract

The axially symmetric laminar incompressible viscous fluid flow due to uniform blowing through two parallel porous plates is investigated. The governing Navier-Stokes equations are transformed into a nonlinear ordinary differential equation by using similarity transformation. We developed a new elegant approximate scheme based on Haar wavelets coupled with collocation approach for the solution of the problem. Validity of the solution is confirmed by estimating the solution error at various resolution levels. The influence of the Reynolds number on pressure gradient and velocity has been discussed and presented through graphs. We have also analysed the mass transform across the centre plane and a good agreement is found with the available literature results
