The model of temperature profile in the flow of non-Newtonian second-order fluid, flowing in an annulus, is investigated. The boundary of annulus is considered porous. Appropriate similarity transformation is used to convert non-linear PDEs into non-linear ODEs. The obtained differential equations are solved numerically. The nature of the temperature profile is presented graphically for the various physical parameters.
