## Abstract

Three-dimensional Couette flow of an incompressible Jeffrey fluid is formulated and discussed analytically and graphically. The suction is applied over uniformly moving upper plate and its equivalent deduction by injection at the lower stationary plate. Because of this type of suction/injection, this flow turns into three-dimensional. An analytical method is applied to get main flow velocity, secondary flows velocities and pressure components. Also skin friction components along the main and secondary flow directions have been calculated. The effects of different physical parameters, for example, the Deborah number, suction/injection parameter, the ratio of relaxation time to the retardation time and Reynolds number have been discussed graphically. It is witnessed that the Deborah number plays vital role to control the main flow velocity.
