In this paper, six types of unsteady flows are examined, namely, the impulsive flow, flow caused by a constantly accelerated plate, flows induced by impulsive and constant pressure gradients, flows induced by plate motions, flow imposed by a flat plate that applies a constant tangential stress to the fluid, and flow generated by an oscillating rigid plate. A generalized second-grade model with the fractional calculus is considered. Exact analytical solutions of unsteady flows have been constructed by using discrete Laplace transform of fractional derivatives.
