Conference paper


The theory of Micropolar fluid, developed by Eringen(l), has received considerable attention because it has been used to model complex fluids such as polymeric suspensions, blood and some naturally occuring oils. A review paper highlighting various contributions in this field was written by Ariman, Turk and Sylvester (2). Ahmadi (3) and Wilson (4) considered boundary layer flows over semi-infinite flat plate.
