Abstract

In this paper, we are considering viscous incompressible fluid flow through a porous medium between two coaxial cylinders. The governing equations have been solved by using Finite element Galekin’s approach. The velocity and temperature profiles of the flow are computed numerically and their behaviours are discussed by graphs for different values of the parameters.
