    Abstract: Petroleum systems have a high level of complexity due to the presence of a huge variety of organic compounds, mainly hydrocarbons. These characteristics, not only make difficult its recovery but also its study. In this sense, the study of parameters, such as the local variation of interfacial tension (IFT) is essential to understanding the behavior... Show More

    Abstract: The main theme of the present examined the influence of heat transfer on magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) for the oscillatory flow of Williamson fluid with variable viscosity model for two kinds of geometries "Poiseuille flow and Couette flow" through a porous medium channel. The momentum equation for the problem, is a non-linear differential equations, ... Show More
