Abstract

Two-dimensional flow of a fluid with pressure-dependent viscosity through a variable permeability porous structure is considered. Exact solutions are obtained for a Riabouchinsky type flow using a procedure that is based on a method implemented by the late Professor Dr. R.K. Naeem of Karachi University in his study of Navier-Stokes flow with pressure-dependent viscosity.
