Exact analytic solution for the flow of non-Newtonian fluid of grade two generated by periodic oscillations of a plane disk is obtained. The velocity field and the moment of the frictional forces are calculated and the results are compared with those for Newtonian fluid. The moments caused by certain special oscillations are also discussed.
