Abstract
In this work, an approach based on traveling wave phenomenon is implemented for finding exact solutions of MHD aligned flow of an incompressible second grade fluid. The partial differential equations (PDEs) are reduced to ordinary differential equations (ODEs) by using wave parameter. The methodology used in this work is independent of symmetry consideration and other restrictive assumption. Comparison is made with the results obtained previously.
