This paper describes a class of exact solutions of the equations of motion for an unsteady, incompressible non-Newtonian second grade fluid in the Cartesian co-ordinates. The exact solutions of non-linear equations governing the flow of second grade fluids are obtained through generalized separation variables method by assuming certain form of stream functions. The expressions for velocity profile and vorticity stream function are constructed.
