In this work, tank drainage phenomena for in-compressible and isothermal fluid having unsteady fluid flow for third order fluid is studied. Analytical solution of the proposed problem is obtained using perturbation method subject to proper boundary conditions. No-slip condition is used because of fluid will have zero velocity relative to a solid boundary. Object of this work is to find out the velocity profile, flow rate, time required to empty a tank (time efflux) and mathematical relation of time and depth of the tank. Influence of different parameter over velocity profile, effect of radius of the tank over depth, effect of radius of piper over flow rate and effect of depth over flow rate are examined graphically using mathematica. Velocity profile of this model is compared with newtonian fluid's while assuming epsilon as a zero using graph and table from which it is clear that third order fluid posses greater velocity then Newtonian fluid.
