Applications of Group Theoretical Methods to Non-Newtonian Fluid Flow Models: Survey of Results

Taha Aziz, F. M. Mahomed
2017 Mathematical Problems in Engineering  
The present review is intended to encompass the applications of symmetry based approaches for solving non-Newtonian fluid flow problems in various physical situations. Works which deal with the fundamental science of non-Newtonian fluids that are analyzed using the Lie group method and conditional symmetries are reviewed. We provide the mathematical modelling, the symmetries deduced, and the solutions obtained for all the models considered. This survey includes, as far as possible, all the
