In this paper, we investigated theoretically the flow of an incompressible 2D couple stress fluid. Here, we considered the flows for which the stream function is given by ψ = y + f(x) eky, where k is a real constant and f(x) is a function to be determined.We obtained the exact expressions for the stream function and thus the velocity and pressure for different values of k and for the different values of viscosities.
