Question: consider steady fullydeveloped flow between two parallel plates as shown...

Question details

Consider steady, fully-developed flow between two parallel plates, as shown below PLATE μι H2 H/2 V/2 PLATE The top plate moves horizontally to the right at a speed of V, while the bottom plate moves to the left at a speed of V/2. In between, there are two viscous fluids, which do not mix. The fluid on top has a thickness H and a viscosity μι , while the fluid on bottom has a thickness H/2 and a viscosity μ2-μ1/2. You may assume that there is no slip, and the velocity profiles are linear in each fluid. a. Determine the velocity profile, u(y), between the two plates. Answer in terms of V, H, and μι. b. Evaluate the shear stress, T, at the interface
